At Leisure Care, we believe that love is a verb. Every February, we show the communities where we live, work, and play how much we love them by getting active and raising funds that will make a tangible difference in the lives of children and families in those communities.

Fun and fitness intersected during our February Fitness Challenge as Leisure Care communities across the country came together from February 1 – February 29 for our 6th Annual February Fitness Frenzy. Learn more about our 2019 February Fitness Frenzy results and see which communities moved the most and raised the most this year!

Moving More Than Ever. Giving More Than Ever.

Our 6th Annual February Fitness Frenzy was a record breaker! Held from February 1 to February 29, 2019, we saw 2,614 participants from our home office, community employees, residents, family, and friends come together to reach personal goals. 

During the 29-day challenge, staff, residents, family, and friends raised money by getting at least 30 minutes of activity per day within and outside their senior living community. Participants had their choice of activity, including swimming, dancing, biking, Wii bowling, Nu-Step, yoga, and personal training sessions – the options for activity minutes were limitless. Communities came together for planned events like walk-a-thons, seated soccer games, group hikes, and more.

Funds were raised by taking pledges at a rate of $.05 per minute so that if a participant exercised every day of the challenge for 30 minutes, he or she would raise $42 for the month.

We are so proud of our communities who went above and beyond so that we can continue to provide grants that make a positive and immediate impact on the children and families in our local areas.
