Celebrating aging and the benefits of active living at any age, Active Aging Week showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society. This campaign also spotlights role models that lead the way. Learn how you can join with thousands of Active Aging Week supporters to help change the way we age.
Tell us what you did during Active Aging Week to redefine the term "Active."
Active Aging Week in Saint Peter, Minnesota – sponsored by the Mankato Clinic Foundation and Friends of the Saint Peter Library – was a weeklong of free events including a one-mile fun walk, Pickleball clinic, make and take craft day, field day with the local preschool and concluded with a mini-Senior Expo. Nearly 75 people took part of the events and each person was given a goodie lunch bag with the AAW logo; the lunch bag was full of swag provided by local vendors including ice packs, oranges and a bottle of water. This was the first time Saint Peter hosted Active Aging Week and the reception was very positive. We look forward to offering this program in the future.
