TENAFLY, N.J.– Bergen County volunteers and swimmers with multiple sclerosis celebrated the end of the summer season as they prepared for the new Swim-In Program starting Wednesday, Sept. 14.

The Swim-In Program, a National Council for Jewish Women Bergen County Section community service project for people with multiple sclerosis, held an end-of-summer afternoon at the Tenafly Pizzeria Restaurant.

The volunteers and swimmers reunited to socialize, catch up with their friends, and enjoy a Italian meal.

The free therapeutic program runs at the JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly from September through May on Wednesdays from 1-3 p.m.

Since 1976, NCJW BCS, in collaboration with the National MS Society NJ Metro Chapter, has provided a once-a-week water program where people with MS have an opportunity for therapeutic exercise.

The program is supervised by a licensed physical therapist. Volunteers assist clients in the locker room and with wheelchairs in the pool area. Each client is fitted with a buoyancy belt and helped into the pool where they swim or exercise with a trained volunteer.

Volunteers don't have to know how to swim, and a short training program is provided. For more information about volunteering for this program or another opportunity, email office@ncjwbcs.org, call 201-385-4847 or visit www.ncjwbcs.org.

The National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) is a grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates who turn progressive ideals into action. Inspired by Jewish values, NCJW strives for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, and families and by safeguarding individual rights and freedoms.
