Remember to Keep Moving!

What's the secret to still dancing through life at 106 years old?  According to Virginia McLaurin: "Just keep movin!"

Ms. McLaurin was overjoyed to meet the President and First Lady at the White House last week to celebrate Black History Month, and she filled everyone around her with joy as well. Her mobility and positivity are an inspiration, and we hope everyone out there is also reminded and encouraged to keep moving!!
