A Wellness Center for people with disabilities opened Monday in Wexford.

Peter Clakeley, Director of The Woodlands, a non-profit that works to increase the lives of people with disabilities, says people with physical disabilities may feel more comfortable and less self-conscious working out around other people with disabilities.

They gym was funded by The State and by foundation money. A rehabilitation specialist will be working there. There will also be special equipment that is specially built for people with physical disabilities. The center has been working on establishing the center for the last five years.

Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato and State Senator Jane Orie were expected at the opening ceremony.
