The class is led by Paul Mruk, a retired Memphis Police Captain who has served in the Marine Corp and Air National Guard. A BRMC Volunteer for the past 12 years, Paul was a 2010 inductee into the Arkansas Senior Hall of Fame.

Fight Back will be offered Thursday, September 14 at 7:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. and Friday, September 15 at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the BRMC Lagerborg Dining Room.
