Heritage Woods of Gurnee, a Gardant affordable assisted living community, will host a Walk-a-thon from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on April 23.
The community, which is located at 3775 Grand Ave. in Gurnee, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
The event will have different stations that inspire healthier lifestyles, and for each one guests visit, they will win a prize or take away important health information.
“Be prepared to hula hoop for 10 seconds, do five arm curls with 2.5 pound weights, stretch and try some refreshing lemon or cucumber-infused water,” said Director of Marketing Tammy Temaner-Rosas.
The Walk-a-thon coincides with the "My Health. My Life" theme of this year's statewide Supportive Living Week celebration. Supportive Living Week is observed every April and highlights the communities within the Illinois Supportive Living Program.
