Stay Strong, Stay Healthy Program

The Stay Strong, Stay Healthy program focuses on improving the health and well-being of older adults. The goal of the program is to provide safe, structured and effective strength training for older adults. One of the best ways to keep your body and mind functioning at their best is to exercise. Regular participation in strengthening exercises can help you build muscle and increase bone density, which prevents frailty and osteoporosis. We have been doing this program in Wallace and Sherman County and participants have commented about being able to walk up and down stairs easier, some have lost some weight and definitely feeling stronger. So I hope this will encourage the Cheyenne County people to sign up for the program.

The dates and times for Cheyenne County are:
Starting: May 2, from 10:30-11:30 CT
At the: Senior Center
It will be every Tuesday and Thursday with some
exceptions. So mark the following dates on your
calendar and save the dates.
May: May 2, 4, 9, 11, 16, 18, 23, 25
June: June 6, 8
July: July 4, 11, 13, 18, 20
