Fairwinds – Redmond is proud to announce we have achieved our goal of ‘walking across Europe.’ Physical fitness is a priority at Fairwinds – Redmond where fitness meets Five-Star Fun!

Exceeding Expectations at Fairwinds – Redmond

Fairwinds - Redmond Celebrates Walk Across EuropeAt the beginning of 2019, our PrimeFit instructor Kelly Fennelly began a “Walk Across America” contest where she planned out a year’s worth of destinations to serve as milestones to keep residents and staff motivated throughout the year.

When residents reached Florida after just two months of the contest, we realized we were going to expand our horizons. We set our eyes on Europe and started in Iceland, ending in Spain. Our residents collected miles as they walked, swam, danced at Zumba Gold, played miniature golf, balloon fitness, or did a number of other physical activities.

Fairwinds - Redmond Celebrates Walk Across EuropeResident Larey McDaniel walked 938 miles over the year. He said he participates because the event keeps him motivated and he enjoys competing with the other challengers.

Next year, our residents have their eyes set on walking across Asia. PrimeFit will be partnering with our chef to create themed lunch and dinner menus that celebrate each milestone and destination.

Fairwinds – Redmond provides independent living and assisted living services that encourage and empower residents to live their best retirement. From our fitness programs to our social calendar, life at Fairwinds – Redmond is Five Star Fun! We would love for you to join us as we Walk Across Asia in 2020! Call or stop by today to learn more.
