Fit 55+

Fit 55+ is the name of our fitness initiative under which we run a number of free, multi-cultural programs for both the able-bodied and frail.

Fitness is a high priority for DPNCHC Seniors. In a recent independent study, it was found that DPNCHC seniors are more active in joining in programs/services and more active in their daily lives than survey participants outside our agency.

Fit 55+ will improve your independence, health, and well-being through fun, physical activity.
