The YMCA of WNC will provide an array of services and information to help you live healthier
Healthy Aging Day will feature group exercise classes, informative lectures, health screenings, and more.
Join the YMCA of Western North Carolina as we celebrate Healthy Aging Month at the ninth annual Healthy Aging Day on Sept. 5. Healthy Aging Month, created by Carolyn Worthington, is an annual health observance designed to focus attention on the positives aspects of growing older. Healthy Aging Month is now celebrating its second decade, and aims to provide inspiration and practical ideas for adults to improve their physical, mental, social, and financial well-being.
The free event at the Reuter Family YMCA in Biltmore Park will feature group exercise classes, pickleball, flu vaccines, informative lectures, free health screenings, and vendor booths.
“You are never too old or too young to participate in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being,” said Diane Saccone, director of healthy aging initiatives at the YMCA of WNC. “If you need help, support, or just a place to get started, community-based organizations like the Y provide the needed guidance to help older adults age well.”
Healthy Aging Day takes place Thursday, Sept. 5 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the Reuter Family YMCA in Biltmore Park. The event is presented by Ardenwoods.
