Success Stories: Just For Fun

Evelyn G., age 64

I'm a retired physical education teacher and I love being active. It benefits me physically and mentally. I also get joy out of seeing children be active. I volunteer at the CATCH Healthy Habits program through OASIS, helping children learn healthy eating and physical activity habits for a lifetime. The games I teach get them moving, running, and exercising. Kids see how fun it is and look forward to more. I look forward to volunteering each week because I’m reaching children, and being a volunteer in the program means I benefit, too. We need more activity in our lives no matter how old we are.
