Gina Formica and Jennifer Conway are on a mission to motivate residents at all of Liberty’s senior communities. Formica, Director of the Becoming Center, and Conway, resident and wellness coordinator at the Becoming Center, came up with the “Amazing Race.” Much like the television show, residents “travel” to a different destination each week. The “Amazing Race” is a walking challenge designed to encourage residents to get moving every day. Over the course of four weeks, residents will travel to four different global locations. Residents will “travel” to Italy, the Orient, Mexico and conclude their race with a virtual trip to New York City! Each participating resident is equipped with a passport that is stamped each Friday, if they complete their walking for the week. Residents also enjoy a meal on that Friday inspired by the destination to which they traveled.
