The Healthy Aging Project I was a part of was the "Walks of Life" Walkathon, and all of the hard work in the pre-planning phase paid off. We had a group of over 45 people from 4 different walking groups show up, and they were all very excited for the event. Many of the elders wanted the course to be longer, and many of them wanted to have this as a reoccurring event, so that's how we knew we could progress this event into something more in the future! Overall, I was very happy with the event, and it was a great way to conversate and learn from the elders while at the same time doing a healthy activity.
I am signing off for now, but will continue to address the needs of elders after this class is over. This was an amazing experience, and I could not be any more grateful.
