What is a Moai?
The notion of a Moai - which roughly means "meeting for a common purpose"-originated as a means of social support in the longevity hotspot of Okinawa, Japan.
45 Moais have been launched around the Umpqua Valley! Take this opportunity to Meet Your Moai, dive in to a new healthy behavior, and strengthen relationships with old and new friends!
Meet at the Roseburg Senior Center Friday, September 21st at 10 am with comfortable shoes to go through a "Meet Your Moai" activity and then go for a walk!
