Foot Traffic

  • Let the training begin!
    They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and never have I banked on those words as much as I have when picking out a training plan for Fort4Fitness.
  • In training: Meet Tami
    Meet Tami Brigle. She is a northwest Ohio resident who works in Fort Wayne. She began running a little more than a year ago, starting with Couch to 5K. Running helped her lose 55 pounds (she's lost 105 pounds total).
  • Triple play
    If one is good and two is better, what does that make three? I'd be inclined to say crazy but others might call it a challenge.

I worked with Woodview Health Care so that I would have permission to include the residents in the video and photos during Mimi Rolland's singalong. Activities director Jennifer Samuelson contacted all of the residents and family members to make sure that everyone agreed to be included.

Photographers are allowed to take photos in public places but in private spaces we have to have permission to take the photos and run people's pictures in the newspaper.

Fortunately, everyone was willing to be included, because I really felt that this was a positive story that everyone would enjoy. The fact that everyone at Woodview Health Care loves Mimi Rolland, help me get the permission I needed.

I appreciate that Mimi Rolland and Woodview Health Care let me do this story. To see the video click here.
