"Staying physically fit after serving in the military is essential for Veterans. It supports overall health and mental well-being, and can help with the transition to civilian life. Regular exercise provides a sense of routine and discipline, which helps with adaptation outside the military environment. Fitness contributes to long-term health, helps manage stress and improves overall quality of life.

If you have disabilities, physical activity can be adapted to your abilities. Adaptive exercises can improve mobility, strength and mental well-being."

One of our favorite rides this time of year takes one south to the Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge- If you haven't made the ride, just ride south from town on the main ditch top road- it's a good gravel surface. This is a great Trike ride as well!The National Hispanic Cultural Center is a great place to park...

Look what I found- There was a time when we produced events- Think this was early 2000's... I counted up over 40 events throughout early 80's to 2005. This may have been the last one-benefit for the UNM Physical Therapy Club.
