Because of You: Walt & Pam
“At any time during life, but especially during a pandemic, an exercise group not only helps you stay healthy but also offers a very valuable social and emotional outlet. It’s how we can connect with others.”
Walt and Pam are local seniors who have found great value in the programs offered by Fit 4 the Cause. Pam is a California native who graduated from UCLA and became a teacher. She was a runner at a younger age, but eventually needed an ACL replacement. She got involved at a local gym as an alternative to running and eventually found the Silver Sneakers Program and Fit 4 the Cause.
Walt has been in Southern California since he was 10 years old, prior to that he was in the South Bay. He used to be a runner, but eventually had a hip replacement and found Fit 4 the Cause. He too has found Fit 4 the Cause’s programs to be extremely beneficial.
In fact, Walt and Pam Loved the programs so much that when the pandemic hit, they volunteered to open a Zoom account to keep things going.
Pam thinks that the program is “wonderful and it is one way for us to stay healthy in mind and body.” She says it helps them both with their attitude and keeps them strong and healthy. She shared that she and Walt walk and ride bikes, but without Cindy, we wouldn’t be able to do strength training, yoga, and Zumba. “Fit 4 the Cause gives us a more well rounded physical fitness regimen.”
Equally as important, both Pam and Walt credit Fit 4 the Cause for giving them a social and emotional outlet. “We even have a virtual happy hour going to maintain that connection.” Both Walt and Pam have also been touched by how open the programs at Fit 4 the Cause are. All are welcome and all can benefit. The programs provided by Fit 4 the Cause are making a real difference in our community.
GIFTS OF ANY AMOUNT ARE APPRECIATED
