Plans are underway for the 10th annual Mattapan Moving for Life event. This event provides opportunities for residents of all ages to experience the joys of being active in Mattapan.
For the last three years Boston Nature Center in Mattapan has opened up its facilities for the event. Activities include non-competitive and family friendly walking and running. There are also opportunities to participate in other traditional and non-traditional physical activities including dance, yoga, and stretching. Promotion of healthy diets is always a part of the event, with nutrition workshops, healthy cooking demos and healthy snacks.
Local physical fitness and sports programs as well as health promotion organizations and agencies provide enrollment and health information at the event.
