What is LIFE?
The Living well through Intergenerational Fitness and Exercise (LIFE) Program is the first of its kind—a unique program led by younger adults that increases access for at-risk older rural populations to sustainable, low cost, physical activity programming. This website can be used to help develop a LIFE Program in your community.
I could never kept up with the walking tour [in Europe] had I’d not had the exercise from [the LIFE Program at the] senior center, so thanks! I felt better with the walking—need to get back to that.
