Atlanta Senior Day
For the past 7 years,
STRIDE + PlayHrd TrainHrd have been empowering seniors to get fit and stay active! Through our efforts, lifestyles have changed, eating habits have improved, and bodies have transformed. We teach seniors living in marginalized communities throughout metro Atlanta that fun fitness opportunities are available, and how they benefit them directly.
The 2nd Annual Atlanta Senior Day event will be held on October 8, 2019, from 10 am to 1 pm at The Home Depot Backyard. This event will feature fitness expos, health screenings, cooking demos, entertainment, and guest speakers. The purpose of Atlanta Senior Day is to educate seniors on various ways to lead healthy lifestyles. Your support for this event is important because the seniors we serve are some of the most vulnerable members of our community. By age 75, approximately one in three men and one in two women report that their lifestyles do not include any physical activity. Lack of activity leads to increased risk of bodily injury (among other serious health issues). With your support, we will be able to offer free weekly fitness classes at the 11 city recreational facilities that service the senior community.
Last year, Atlanta Senior Day was attended by more than 1000 seniors, community leaders, and fitness professionals.
