Rye Y Encourages Healthy Living during Active Older Adults Month

active-older-adult[RYE, April 27, 2016] May is Active Older Adults Month and the Rye YMCA is offering a full schedule of activities to inspire older adults to get motivated. Throughout the month, the Y will celebrate healthy aging, with a focus on nutrition and meal planning, physical activity and social interaction. The Rye Y welcomes older adults to join our community and will waive the $100 Joiner’s Fee for adults age 62 and older from May 2-20.  

“Today’s older adults want to be more active, engaged and in control of their health,” Laura Tiedge, the Y’s Senior Director of Healthy Living, noted. “The Rye Y can help them reach their goals.”

The following activities and programs are free of charge. Some are open to all community members; others are limited to Rye Y members. For more information, please contact Penny Cozza at 914-9676-6363, x 201 (penny@ryeymca.org)
