SilverSneakers® by Tivity Health will return as the Presenting Sponsor of the beloved Labor Day tradition for families across Middle Tennessee, offering the 5K, 10K, 15K and 1K Kids Fun Runs in downtown Franklin.
SilverSneakers is America’s leading fitness program for older adults, providing social and fitness opportunities at more than 16,000 locations throughout the country. The program is offered to Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement members through more than 60 health plans nationwide.
Steve Janicak, Healthcare Division President, Tivity Health, said that the company is thrilled to partner with Mercy once again by supporting the Franklin Classic.
“The Franklin Classic is a family-friendly event that promotes fitness for all ages, from young children to older adults.” Janicak said. “Many of our SilverSneakers members enjoy participating in the race year after year, especially since the race supports the great work that Mercy is doing to provide affordable and accessible healthcare to all. Our mission is to empower and engage adults to live their best healthy lives through nutrition, fitness and social connection. Mercy’s Franklin Classic is an ideal opportunity that helps us reach this goal.”
“Mercy couldn’t be more excited to partner with SilverSneakers once again for this event that touches so many lives in the Franklin community,” said Cindy Siler, CEO of Mercy Community Healthcare. “Both organizations have a strong respect for each other’s mission, and it’s only fitting that we join together to celebrate health, wellness and community.”
