"My retirement plans include gardening, hiking, and biking.  I feel better and have more energy when I eat healthy and include walking and stairs in my daily routine.  Be Well UC provides excellent resources and encouragement to make healthy food choices and to keep moving!"

“Every night after dinner my family takes a walk, no excuses.  I want my son to grow up learning healthy habits. It is my favorite part of each day.”

"Being that my job requires me to sit for the majority of the day, I end up becoming fatigued and complacent just from sitting around the office. I’ve found that visiting the Rec Center at Care/Crawley each day on my lunch break, for an impactful 40 minute workout, gives me the energy to power through the rest of the day."
