The program will offer a variety of exercise programs, such as yoga and zumba, along with proper nutrition classes and evening workshops on healthy eating and proper meal preparation.

“Fitness and self-care are important in order for our adult residents to be able to lead healthy and productive lives,” said Executive Director Trish Appert. “It is also critical that the behaviors they are modeling for their children are healthy, so this second generation has habits that will diminish the occurrence of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.”

“Bethany Hill School provides affordable housing and educational opportunities to a vulnerable population,” said Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a trustee of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation. “We are pleased to help with the introduction of a health and fitness program for the residents of the School.”

The $2,500 grant to the Bethany Hill School was among awards totaling $45,000 made by the Foundation in its most recent round of funding. 

The MutualOne Charitable Foundation is a continuation of the Framingham Co-operative Bank Charitable Foundation following the 2012 merger of Framingham Co-operative Bank and Natick Federal Savings Bank.

Since it was originally established in 1998, the Foundation has donated over $2.3 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enhance the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
