“In communities, organizations and neighborhoods, local hosts provide fun, (mostly) free activities and events that promote wellness in any or all of life’s dimensions. Offerings primarily target adults ages 50+. Participants are invited to explore these opportunities in a friendly, safe, supportive environment in the hope that they may try new things and perhaps find an activity that engages them which, in turn, might motivate them to adopt (or advance) a lifestyle of healthy, active aging. Participation also reinforces the core message of Active Aging Week: It is possible to live a full, vital and productive life at any age.”
