HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) -- For parents of children with special needs, taking part in big events can be daunting.

"I think a lot of us feel isolated, as parents," explains Jennifer Taggart.

Taggart's 12-year-old son, Loren, is nonverbal. He has Autism and Apraxia. But Loren is seeing improvements in his daily living by working out at Fitness 4 Focus.

Fitness 4 Focus opened in 2010. Founder, Chris Russell, has gyms in Hershey, Lancaster, and Mechanicsburg. Every day, he helps athletes with special needs, like Loren, live a more independent lifestyle.
