The 10th annual Lake Norman Senior Fun and Fitness Day will be Tuesday April 19 beginning at 9 am at Jetton Park in Cornelius. Older adults will have the opportunity to take a fitness walk around the park. The event is organized by the North Mecklenburg Senior Center.

Healthcare vendors will be organized in a “vendor village” located near the beach to make it easier for participants to access them and have their questions answered.

Fun and fitness games will be located together at Waterfront Hall area and will include such offerings as badminton, corn hole, ladder golf, target sticky ball, a soccer type of game and a “giant Connect 4” game, as well as a canoe and kayaks with an instructor at the beach.

Older adults are also urged to use the walking trial which will be available all day. To encourage use of the trail, there will be a leader-led group fitness walk at 9:30am where everyone will receive a pedometer and have the option of walking the ½ mile or 1 ¼ mile loop.

The day will also include a chair exercise class, a Gentle Yoga Class and a Line Dance Class, as well as lunch. Blood pressure checks and other health screenings will also be available at Waterfront Hall provided by Novant Health Huntersville..
