CATCH Healthy Habits in Richmond

CATCH Healthy Habits in Richmond is hosted by Senior Connections, The Capital Area Agency on Aging, in partnership with the Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Gerontology.

  
CATCH Healthy Habits combats the serious public health problem of obesity by engaging mature adults as mentors to teach healthy lifelong habits to kids in grades K - 5.

You can help!

 
Research shows that adults over 50 who volunteer have lower rates of depression and mortality and greater functional ability than those who do not volunteer. And as a CATCH volunteer, you are not only helping promote healthy habits for kids but also gaining that experience for yourself! Being involved in the CATCH program also provides the opportunity to experience the rewards of meaningful community service.

To volunteer or learn more about CATCH Healthy Habits in Richmond, email Sara Morris, or call 804.828.1565.
