The Shingletown Medical Center will join an estimated 1,000 local groups to celebrate the 22nd Annual National Senior Health & Fitness Day (NSHFD). As an official site, Shingletown Medical Center and co-sponsor Shasta Regional Medical Center are hosting the event that will take place on Wednesday, May 27th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. The event will be held at Shingletown’s Open Door Community Church, which is 8 miles east of downtown Shingletown directly on the 44 Highway.
The 2015 theme is “If You Keep Moving… You’ll Keep Improving!” The event will feature exercise demonstrations from members of the Shingletown’s “Fun With Senior Fitness” program. The Active Aging Community Task Force in Redding sponsors this senior fitness program consisting of easy exercises to improve strength, flexibility, endurance, and balance for seniors (50 and above) of all abilities.
At the event there will be an assortment of informational booths designed to help the community become aware of the many health-related programs, community & county services, and local providers within our area. There will also be an assortment of “tasty” food samplings, along with a variety of great raffle items from all the vendors. For only $10.00 you get your two arm’s length of tickets.
“The Shingletown Medical Center believes this “free-to-the-public” event will provide a valuable service to our area,” stated Tami Fraser, CEO. “We are excited about providing this Senior Health & Fitness Day to our community and hope everyone can join us for a fun and informative experience.”
