The Wednesday morning event held in honor of National Senior Health and Fitness Day was moved indoors due to the weather.
A little–or a lot–of rain couldn't stop the Oakwood Common senior living facility from celebrating healthy living for America's older adults. So as buckets of rain poured down on southeast Michigan Wednesday morning, the facility moved its Community Walk-A-Thon indoors. The event aimed to spread awareness of the importance of National Senior Health and Fitness Day, and was originally supposed to include a two-mile walk around the grounds of Oakwood Common, as well as health assessments and presentations. Everything took place as planned–only indoors–including presentations on dietary guidelines and physical therapy for seniors, plus a speech by Dearborn Mayor Jack O'Reilly.
