STRONG65 is a free program designed by Dr. Bill Gonzaba to help seniors around San Antonio celebrate health and fitness. On August 24th, Gonzaba Medical Group invited seniors over 62 years old to come out to Woodlawn Lake Park and celebrate life at the STRONG65 Kick-Off Party!
Kick-Off Party When seniors showed up to the STRONG65 Kick-Off Party, they were showered with many goodies, including stress balls, t-shirts, pens, and even a VIP card! The morning started off with water aerobics at the pool and was followed by Zumba in the gymnasium. Then, the seniors got a special surprise visit from Dr. Bill Gonzaba. 83-year-old Dr. Bill discussed how important it is for seniors to take control of their health. He even gave the secrets to staying young: keep active and eat healthily. He also urged everyone to get out of the house and just have a good time. There is strength in 65! Those who came to the party also enjoyed a free farmer’s market! The San Antonio Food Bank donated an assortment of fresh vegetables from local farmers for our seniors. These bags were filled with cucumbers, zucchinis, melons, tomatoes, lemons, limes, bell peppers, cauliflower, salad mix, and more! The fun didn’t stop there. A live DJ showed up to the party, and everyone hit the dance floor to show off their line dancing moves. Then, it was time for everyone’s favorite event… bingo! Each winner was given a special prize. The party ended with a delicious lunch provided by the Gonzaba staff. Those who came enjoyed hot dogs, fruit, veggie sticks, Gatorade, and water.
VIP (Very Important Partner) Card Those who came were able to sign up for their STRONG65 VIP Card. This VIP Card gives seniors over 62 years old exclusive access to events throughout the program.
