Copper City Community Connection honors pair for achievement
With some help from the Slocum-Dickson Foundation, Inc., the Copper City Community Connection has recognized its first members to achieve the Presidents Active Lifestyle Award.
Mary E. McNeil and Bruce Dudley worked over an eight-week period to achieve the healthy eating and physical activity goals established by the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition.
The awardees achieved 150 minutes of physical activity each week along with meeting the healthy eating goals by eating six of the nine components of the healthy eating pattern or limiting added sugars, saturated fats or reducing sodium intake.
CCCC is again offering the eight-week program with the current program to end on Jan. 28, 2022.
Copper City Community Connection is a community-based organization working toconnect older adults, seniors, and the elderly to a healthy independent lifestyle through social, artistic, educational, and physical programs supporting independence.
