Active Aging Week

October 5-9, 2020

This weeklong series of events is designed to celebrate the positivity of aging today. It showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society and spotlights the role models that lead the way.

There is no charge for Active Aging Week events, however, pre-registration is required and space is limited. Call 427-6460 or stop by the Community Center to sign up. Registration deadlines are two days prior to each event. Check-in for tournaments is 30 minutes before each event.

All events are held at the Community Center, 233 W. Main St. unless otherwise noted.

Help us kick off Active Aging Week! Join the Active Agers team for the Alzheimer’s Walk. Virtual kick-off is at 9:30 followed by a 1-mile walk through downtown to the event at Parkview Field. Return to the Community Center at your leisure (it’s a short walk). This activity is free but you must call 427-6460 to register by September 26. The Community Center works closely with the Fort Wayne Alzheimer’s Association to provide programming in support of caregivers and those with early stage dementia.
