The Junior League of Summit is helping to raise funds and awareness for SAGE Eldercare by joining with SAGE for a “Move in May” event, May 1 – 16. The goal is for participants to raise money, through donations, by moving their bodies. Movement can include: running, biking, skate boarding, walking the dog, strolling or any activity that gets people up and moving. The more someone moves the more they earn for SAGE.
The timing of the event is significant for SAGE as May is Older Americans Month (OAM). Each year OAM picks a theme. This year’s theme is Communities of Strength. SAGE is hopeful that the Summit community will come together to support the nonprofit, which has been helping to improve the lives of older adults in Summit and the surrounding area for 67 years. Along with Home Care services and a Spend-A-Day Adult Day Medical Program, SAGE offers free support groups for caregivers, Medicare counseling, the Your Decisions Matter program and Meals on Wheels, which delivered more than 50,000 meals throughout the area in 2020.
“The Junior League of Summit is thrilled to support SAGE with their Move in May event,” said Tara Charvat, the Junior League’s President. “We have partnered with SAGE for decades and see this as another way we can give back to SAGE and the community through the planning and execution of this safe and fun virtual event.”
