Senior Women Stand Strong

Stand Strong Group

Seven senior women now stand stronger after completing a six week self defence course at Silver Harbour Centre. The Stand Strong Program was specifically developed to provide senior individuals with a heightened awareness, strategies and skills to be safer in the community and their homes. Learning self defence techniques and maneuvers, these senior women are now better equipped to look out for danger and to put up resistance to attack.

The Stand Strong Program builds confidence, awareness, and skill, but most of all it is fun!

This program was sponsored through Hollyburn Family Services Society with support from the  Service Canada, New Horizons for Seniors Program. We thank both organizations for their continued support of the Stand Strong program.
