National Senior Health and Fitness Day – Senior Stroll
On Wednesday, May 29, an estimated 100,000 older adults will participate in local fitness activities throughout the country as part of the 26th annual National Senior Health & Fitness Day®, the nation's largest health and wellness event for older adults.
To celebrate this day, Parker Parks and Recreation will host the annual Senior Stroll at 9 a.m. at O’Brien Park, 10795 Victorian Dr. This free event features a one-mile fun walk around the park, followed by a light breakfast, socializing with friends and exciting prize giveaways. Registration for the event is not required.
"Older adults at all levels of physical fitness are encouraged to participate in National Senior Health & Fitness Day," says Patricia Henze, National Senior Health & Fitness Day program manager. "Our goals for Senior Day are to make exercise fun, to increase awareness of the benefits of a regular exercise program for older adults, and to encourage all older adults to take advantage of the many health and fitness programs offered in their communities."
