MCOA Introduces ActiveAgers Initiative and Toolkit

Jun 5, 2024

Mass Councils on Aging’s (MCOA) ActiveAgers is a new initiative aimed at promoting physical activity and enhancing the quality of life for older adults across Massachusetts. This program shines a spotlight on the diverse and dynamic fitness programs offered by local Councils on Aging (COAs), centers for active living, and senior centers. By bringing together these programs under the ActiveAgers umbrella, MCOA aims to create a supportive community focused on health, wellness, and active living for older adults.

COAs are encouraged through the initiative to run physical activity programs and submit data to MCOA to be eligible to win a $250 grant, which will go to 10 councils on aging to support fitness programming. COA participants can win $25 Visa gift cards.

More information is available on the ActiveAgers webpage via MCOA.
