Success Stories: Busy Lifestyle

Volunteering, skiing, biking, walking and canoeing
Jane Q., age 61

I was a Registered Nurse for 15 years, so I understand how important a healthy lifestyle is. I enjoy skiing, biking, walking, and canoeing. I’ve spent the last 10 years as a Finish Line Catcher for the Wisconsin Ironman Triathlon, and I also enjoy helping with the Madison Marathon. Currently, I volunteer with CATCH Healthy Habits through OASIS. CATCH Healthy Habits pairs volunteers like me with children in grades K-5 to help them learn healthy eating habits and get physically active through active games -- games that also have me running, jumping, crawling, and joining in the fun! I’m happy and excited to see the kids each week, encouraging them to participate and learn. It’s a great way to be active, volunteer, and teach valuable life lessons to young children all at once.
