OHAI will host their first annual Statewide Tai Chi-A-Thon fundraiser on Friday, April 26th. This event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at five locations across the state (Oklahoma City, Durant, Enid, Catoosa, and Lawton). Registration is $40 and includes a free event t-shirt for those registered by April 5th.
Tai Chi is a series of gentle physical exercises and stretches. Generally safe for all ages and fitness levels, Tai Chi can help older adults reduce their risk of falling, while also increasing balance and flexibility. Health benefits include reduced blood pressure, better sleep, improved muscular strength, and enhanced mental well-being. It does not matter how strong, flexible or active you are – Tai Chi is designed for people of all ages and levels of health.
OHAI is committed to enhancing the health and quality of life of older Oklahomans and their caregivers through community classes, workshops and professional trainings. Proceeds of the Tai Chi-A-Thon will help OHAI continue to reach all 77 counties across Oklahoma with health education classes and resources.
