There are dozens of free events on offer for seniors across the region for Active Aging Week, Sept. 25 to Oct. 1.
Initiated by the International Council on Active Aging, the Regional District of Nanaimo’s fourth annual week promotes the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle and showcases local resources where older adults can be active in a safe, friendly and fun atmosphere.
With more than 30, mostly free, activities across the region anyone over 65 years of age can choose from things like curling (Parksville 1:30-4 p.m., Sun.), chair tai chi (Nanoose Place, 10:30-11:30 a.m., Tue.) or pickleball and cycling (Oceanside Place 9-11 a.m., Fri.).
The free activity line-up also includes: yoga, hula hooping, mini golf, walking soccer, hooping cardio, zumba, lawn bowling, workshops and tours. The events aim to build stronger connections between older adults and their communities with the theme this year of “explore the possibilities.”
