OHAI will host their second annual Statewide Tai Chi-A-Thon fundraiser on Saturday, April 25th on World Tai Chi Day.  This event will be held from 9:00 am to 12:00 p.m. 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 3rd

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.

The event is open to participants 18 years and older. Register Here. On-site registration will be available at the event.

OHAI is a program of the Donald W. Reynolds Section of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, and is supported by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
