Starting at Cafe Amrita, we will stroll through Morningside Park; stretch our muscles under the shade of the trees; take upbeat movement breaks with our Moving For Life Certified Instructors in the plazas of St. Nicholas park, and conclude with a cool down in the magical gardens of Swindler Cove. Along the way, learn about the local flora and park history from our trusted hike leade Nancy Bruning, BA, MPH, PAPHS, Health Writer & Advocate and Moving For Life Associate.

Come walk, move and stretch with us during our Hike-A-Thon Fundraiser!

Moving For Life’s gentle dance exercise classes are designed to be safe and ease side effects of treatment, increase energy and reduce recurrence for cancer survivors and thrivers. With your support we will be able to provide more opportunities for people of any age affected by cancer and older adults to get moving with confidence.

Together we will be able to get our community dancing towards greater health!
