Move for Life is a series of videos featuring seniors of all ages and abilities demonstrating physical activities. It includes activities for viewers with limited mobility so they can stretch and move safely. It encourages older adults to add more physical activities to their daily routine in a fun and inspiring way while explaining the benefits of doing so.
