You've likely heard the name Collin Clarke mentioned frequently around the Evansville area for some time. In the event you haven't, Collin, who was born with Down Syndrome, made national headlines after dropping 60 pounds and entering his first body building competition in 2015 where he placed fifth in the Men's Novice Category. Now he's teaming up with the University of Evansville's Graduate Physical Therapy Program to lead a free public workout every Saturday in April for kids ages 5 through 17.

The one-hour, low impact workouts will begin at 10:00 A.M. each week, are open to kids of all abilities, and will take place at the Carson Center's small gym on the University of Evansville campus.

Participants will receive a t-shirt, pedometer, Collination cinch bag, and water bottle.

A parents meeting will be held Thursday evening (March 23rd) at 7:00 P.M. at the gym for anyone to ask questions regarding the classes.You can also e-mail, call or text 812-760-0554, or contact them on Facebook for additional information.
