During September 21 through 27, we are again hosting many activities to celebrate Active Aging Week. This year’s theme is Aspire! Be Active Your Way to honor the joy in choosing your own path to a full life.
Promoted by the International Council on Active Aging, the week focuses on the many positive things that people can do to change the way they age.
A full list of events is featured in the community calendar, but one fun event is Fitness Fun! Join us on Wednesday, Sept. 24, for a sampling of fitness classes in the morning followed by an author presentation in the afternoon.
Author Kay LeClaire (photos below) will share her amazing story. Over the past decade, Kay has scaled more than 43 mountains, including climbing Mount Everest two months after she turned 60. This successful ascent put her into the record books: In 2009, she became the oldest woman in the world to climb the Seven Summits—the highest point on each continent. Still an accomplished mountain climber who scales peaks, Kay has led a full life: nurse, competitive dancer, mother, law-school graduate, professional speaker. Following her inspiring presentation, she will sign her book Journey to the Top of the World. Written by Mary Cronk Farrell as told by Kay LeClaire, the book is a compelling story for young readers (grades 5-12) and adults.
