CATCH Healthy Habits in RichmondKids playing a CATCH Healthy Habits game with giant balls

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

CATCH Healthy Habits combats obesity by engaging mature adults as mentors to teach healthy lifelong habits to kids in grades K - 5. You can help! As a CATCH volunteer, you can not only promote healthy habits for kids but also gain that experience for yourself!
