The Salvation Army Kroc Center in Suisun City (586 E Wigeon Way), in partnership with the Fall Prevention Partnership of Solano County, will host the 3rd annual Senior Fitness Festival and Health Fair on Wednesday, September 16. The event will go from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with registration starting at 8:30 a.m. A complimentary lunch will be served to those who register.
“The Salvation Army Kroc Center continues to look to serve and reach the communities needs. The Senior Fitness Festival allows us to meet the specific needs of senior by providing information and services throughout the county that they may not be aware of.” Said Michael Brito, director of operations for the Kroc Center. “This event compliments the programs we have at the center including Prime Time Crafters, Gentle Stretch and Tone, Senior focused aquatics classes, and Silver and Fit and Silver Sneakers programs which allows members to come to the center for free. Our goal is to help senior live a happy and healthy life.”
The Senior Fitness Festival and Health Fair will offer a variety of fitness classes, educational workshops, and resources, in a fun, nonthreatening environment. The overall goal of the event is to give seniors the tools to stay physically active and healthy. Designed for people of all fitness levels, demonstrations include Exerstriders walking sticks, as well as, balance and mobility. There will also a medication review station and medical resource tables.
“Physical activity can be fun, as well as, beneficial for our health and sense of well-being. This is a wonderful opportunity to try new and different forms of activity and learn ways to take better care of your feet, your health, and prevent falls and injuries associated with falling” says Rochelle Sherlock from the Fall Prevention Patnership of Solano County.
