HaysMed Center for Health Improvement Celebrates 25th Anniversary of National Senior Health and Fitness
Hays, Kan. (May 22, 2018) HaysMed’s Center for Health Improvement will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of National Senior Health & Fitness Day. During the week of May 28th – June 1st anyone can attend a Group Fitness or Water Class for free. On Wednesday, May 30 join us for a free class and refreshment as we celebrate the health and fitness of our seniors.
National Senior Health & Fitness Day is organized as a public/private good health partnership by the Mature Market Resource Center (MMRC). It is a program which offers fitness activities for older adults at more than 1,000 locations including hospitals, park and recreation departments, senior centers, health clubs, retirement communities, houses of worship, health departments and other community locations. This national event is held annually on the last Wednesday in May as part of Older Americans Month.
“Older adults at all levels of physical fitness are encouraged to make fitness a goal for life,” said Stephanie Howie, Director at The Center for Health Improvement. “Our goal is to keep older adults moving at whatever age they may be; by showing them that it is never too late to set fitness goals and to make regular exercise a part of their life.”
