Join an expected 500-plus older adults for “The Senior Strut: A Health Event in the Park,” on Friday, Oct. 13, from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Following a musical send-off by a Mummer’s String Band, seniors will walk for health and enjoyment in a one-mile loop down scenic Boathouse Row, Kelly Drive. The Senior Strut, now in its fifth year, is presented by the Fairmount Park Conservancy, Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA) and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation.
After the walk, participants will return to their starting point at Lloyd Hall for a health and information fair with free health screenings; flu shots will be available. Participants also will enjoy fitness and entertainment activities led from a demonstration stage and receive free t-shirts and a healthy snack. The Senior Strut features special appearances by Bill Bergey, three-time MVP and former Eagles all pro middle linebacker, and DJ Patty Pat. Tickets are $5 each and should be purchased by Sept. 29. Participants must be age 60 or older. Call 215-765-9000, ext. 5055 to purchase tickets or go to www.pcaCares.org/Strut.
