Playhrd TrainHrd and The Free Wishes Foundation have made it their mission to serve Metro Atlanta seniors who live in marginalized communities. Under that banner, the partnering organizations will host Atlanta Senior Day at The Home Depot BackYard on Oct. 2.
In its inaugural year, Atlanta Senior Day will feature interactive exhibitors offering free health screenings, cooking demos and games as well as a workout, food from specially curated menus, and music that will journey through the decades. The objective of the day is to highlight applicable approaches to fitness by teaching the senior community how to incorporate healthy choices into their big city lifestyles.
The teaming organizations have committed to providing exposure and access to fun fitness opportunities, and to teaching seasoned Atlantans how to implement healthy choices in their day-to-day activities.

“We have a personal mission to collaborate with organizations that share a passion for the overall quality of life that our older community is living,” said said Jamar Robinson owner of PlayHrd TrainHrd. “It’s important to create fun programming with consideration of possible physical limitations and environmental factors that seniors face when deciding to get fit.”
