A Soulful Story: Fitness Journey

July 14, 2023

Feeding the Jewish Soul is a weekly series of posts that will give you insight into what The Legacy does day in day out, and how it impacts the seniors we serve.

A nightmare happened to Elmo and his family on October 31, 2022. His mom passed away in her sleep. It is believed that an inactive lifestyle was a contributing factor to her early passing.

On the first Mother’s Day since her passing, Elmo ran his first 5k race, the JCC’s Bagel Run, with The Legacy team. Running a 5k was always on his bucket list, and this race gave Elmo the motivation and inspiration to get physically active in honor of his mother.

Elmo worked out three weeks prior to the race to get ready, but on the day of the race, his focus was on his mom. To accomplish his race goal was an amazing feeling that he will always remember, and he appreciates The Legacy for the opportunity to make it happen.

Make more moments like this possible by supporting The Legacy Senior Communities Foundation. It is our great honor to care for seniors. We continue to uphold the mission of our founders by providing a continuum of care to seniors and their families delivered with compassion, dignity, and excellence, while embracing our Jewish values.

Every year, The Legacy Senior Communities Foundation, with support from The Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, provides more than $1 million in charitable care to Jewish seniors in the Dallas area. This care includes resident support and thousands of hours of Personal Assistance Services provided by The Legacy at Home grant program.

It is the community’s continued support that leaves an imprint on the present and future of our organization, creating a level of distinction we call The Legacy Difference. This distinction includes Jewish life initiatives, Kosher dining programming, social events and activities, resident transportation, security, and much more!

The Legacy is able to respond to the most urgent and changing needs of our residents and their families, and the growing demand for senior care and services thanks to our generous donors.

Swing by our Blog every Friday to welcome in Shabbat with a new story highlighting the life seniors live at The Legacy Senior Communities.
