Senior Wellness Program Succeeds in Colorado Springs


The Senior Wellness Program of the Front Range and Plains, a program of SET of Colorado Springs, Colo., held 1,400 wellness events attended by a total of more than 15,000 seniors during the 2006 fiscal year. The program is supported by a grant from the Catholic Health Initiatives Mission and Ministry Fund. The wellness events, which included dances, community walks, spaghetti dinners, computer classes and more, were organized by 30 teams of seniors across 14 counties. Each team received a $500 grant from SET to fund and promote its events. For more information, contact Zelna Joseph, chief executive officer of SET of Colorado Springs, at zelnajoseph@centura.org.
