Virginia Beach, Va. – A group of seniors are taking action to promote health and wellness in Virginia Beach.

Racers from ages 3 to 90, and with all levels of mobility, came out to participate in the Annual Atlantic Shores Everyday Champions 5k Run/Walk on June 1, 2013.

Atlantic Shores staff member, Lugean Boice, and resident, Anita McCrossan participated in the First Annual Atlantic Shores Everyday Champions 5k Run/Walk – it’s a unique fundraising event for the Alzheimer’s Association of South Hampton Roads.

Participants walked, ran, rolled in wheelchairs, or cruised in walkers, as friends and neighbors cheered them on along the route within Atlantic Shores Retirement Community.
