LIFE - Living (Well Through) Intergenerational Fitness & Exercise

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.
