Our story unrevealed - All thanks to Our Better World for sharing

Many of us can easily whip out our running shoes or head to the gym. Some seniors, however, because of their ailments, no longer exercise or attend any fitness classes. They feel old. I want to tell them that they can age actively. I want to reach out to those in need and reignite their confidence, and at the same time, gather like-minded people to bring fitness to them. That's why I started Get Movin' for Charity. We started our first Zumba Gold class two years ago. Designed primarily for seniors, including those who haven't been physically active in a while, the class was very well received. Ever since, we have been conducting free fitness programmes at various senior activity centres. We have seen tremendous improvement in the elderly we work with, not just physically and mentally, but socially as well. Very importantly, we show them that they can have fun and joy while keeping fit. And I believe the love, care and concern shown to them has contributed to the success of this movement. We want to get more seniors healthier, happier and also to build up their self-confidence. So we hope more people will join us. Coaches or instructors can kick-start their own programmes in their neighbourhoods while other volunteers can assist with the planning and organising of these activities. There's so much each of us can do. -

Completed activity: THK BMV Get Movin for Charity 08 Nov 2014

Time flies……2 years ago, when we first started with a pure intention to bring free fitness program to the elderly sector, to ignite their confidence and get them active. We believe everyone needs to age actively and gracefully. We went into the senior activity centres in the neighbourhood to spread this initiative. Today we celebrated our 2nd year anniversary with healthier and fitter elderly.

They had so much fun taking photoshoots with quirky and fun props. We gave out Polaroid photos, new tops donated by kind souls and even conducted lucky draw.We are so glad to see the elderly becoming happy,cheerful and positive than they were before.

~ Somehow I feel, for the past 2 years it wasn't just fitness alone that have made them healthier, it was because we have also brought them happiness, love, care and concern ~

Friends, join us to bless someone within your neighbourhood. Do something for someone. Start your own cause or join hands with us
