Le Renaissance launches new fitness challenge

By Taylor McClure, Special to The Record

On Friday, Le Renaissance Manoir St-Francis launched a new fitness challenge titled ‘Stay Young and Healthy.’ Taking place from Jan. 20 to Feb. 14 the four Renaissance seniors residences in the Townships (Lennoxville, Cowansville, Magog and Thetford Mines) will compete against each other in a friendly competition encouraging residents and staff to participate in the activities that keep them in good health, promote team spirit and get lots of physical exercise. After one month of ‘Stay Young and Healthy,’ a prize will be rewarded to the residence that accumulated the most points for participating in their activities. Residents and staff at Le Renaissance Manoir St-Francis in Lennoxville are ready for the challenge. Starting today, residents and staff at the manor will take part in various activities of their choice and try to accumulate as many points as possible. Each resident will keep track of their weekly score. They have the chance to win the best score of the week, and residents will work together to become the challenge winners by accumulating the most point of all four residences. “Every activity counts. Everything counts except for household chores/jobs,” explained Gabriela Rotariu, Director of the manor. “Fifteen minutes of an activity is one point; it’s as simple as that. The residents and staff are encouraged to participate together, and we will do as much as possible in a group. We want to encourage team spirit.” See full story in the Monday, Jan. 20 edition of The Record
