Senior Active Healthy Living Walking Program

Senior Active Healthy Living Walking Program

In partnership with Amherst Parks and Recreation, The Hampshire Dome and the NH WellPoint Foundation are delighted to co-sponsor a program to enable local citizens ages 70+ from 8 surrounding communities to walk the cushioned track at the Dome for free this winter. Our Active, Healthy Living Program makes it possible for seniors to keep active, maintain their physical conditioning, and enjoy the unique environment the Dome offers during months of most challenging weather.

The program is available to residents of Amherst, Brookline, Hollis, Lyndeborough, Mason, Milford, Mont Vernon and Wilton, starting November 15th.

In announcing the program, Rick Katzenberg, President of the NH Wellpoint Foundation said "I am thrilled by the eager cooperation of the Hampshire Dome in enabling this exciting program to be opened up to our local seniors. We have tested it on a small scale but this multi-community rollout will make healthy exercise an easy and safe option for those who enjoy outdoor walking the rest of the year. In addition to providing healthy exercise, the social benefits during winter when folks feel constrained to their living area is also a great addition. We look forward to a great many individuals and small groups taking advantage of this generous offer by The Hampshire Dome and our foundation".
