Strides for Seniors Walk & Expo Sept 21 at Palmer Park

Caps 30-Day Campaign Showcasing Neighborhood Senior Centers

DETROIT - The Strides for Seniors campaign from September 1 to 30 will spotlight Detroit senior centers and the many services they provide – everything from meals and illness prevention to hustle dance and zumba classes.

With Michiganders over 65 likely to outnumber those under 17 by 2025 – ten years sooner than the USA as a whole – these services grow more essential every year.

Spearheaded by the Detroit Area Agency on Aging (DAAA) and St. Patrick Center, the fourth annual Strides will promote 14 centers in Detroit, Grosse Pointe Farms and Hamtramck during National Senior Center month.

There are three ways the community can participate

• Visiting a Neighborhood Senior Center. It’s a chance to meet wonderful people and experience exciting activities, classes, dance and exercise sessions – and even enjoy a nutritious meal!

• Attending the Free Health Expo - Friday, Sept. 21, at Palmer Park. Dozens of professionals will be on hand from 9 AM to 1 PM – providing health and wellness information, and offering solutions on insurance options, caregiver services, and other concerns facing older adults.

• Joining the Walk or Dance the same day: One and three mile walks offer the opportunity to experience one of Detroit’s most beautiful places. There’s also a hustle dance option. Pre-registration is just $25 – including lunch and a t-shirt – and team participation is encouraged. All proceeds from entry fees, pledges and donations will help support senior centers.

DAAA President and Chairperson Paul Bridgewater is again serving as event chair.

For more information, to pre-register for the walk, or for a list of senior centers, call 313 833-7080 or visit www.stridesforseniors.org.
