There is no denying that something magical happens when older people get together with children. The assumption is that the kids are the ones who benefit most, but before jumping to any conclusions you’ll want to see what happens when William Jones, recently retired, makes his way to the Joe R. Lee Eatonville Boys & Girls Club to volunteer his time mentoring the children. See why William tells us that every time he gives back to the community he is inspired, fulfilled and always a little surprised!
In this story, William is leading a session of the internationally renowned program CATCH Healthy Habits. This particular program was made possible thanks to the Winter Park Health Foundation, an organization Growing Bolder is proud to partner with on a number of initiatives, including the forthcoming Center for Health & Wellbeing. When it opens in 2018, this state-of-the-art center will serve as a resource for those seeking wellness, fitness and medical services all under roof. Together, Growing Bolder and the Winter Park Health Foundation will launch the Wellbeing Network to inspire and educate people everywhere. Stay tuned for more in 2018!
