Senior center walkathon raises funds

Posted on August 27, 2016 at 4:14 pm by Clay Curtin

Over 80 seniors and their family members took over Kelly Park Tuesday, Aug. 23, for the sixth annual Menlo Park Senior Center Walkathon. This annual fundraiser, in collaboration with Stanford Hospital's Strong for Life and Foothill College's Adaptive Learning Program, promotes wellness and healthy habits for seniors. The last minute donation of event t-shirts with the printed quote of "Stronger Than Yesterday" reinforced this goal. The event ended with a simple lunch and fun raffles before the program participants signed off. The $820 in funds raised marks the most successful year for the event and will offset the cost of the senior center’s nutrition program.
