active lifestyles

  Our Falling into Place series spotlights the important work of -and fosters collaboration between- not-for-profit organizations in our communities; allowing us all to fall into place.

Falling Into Place is supported by The Seymour Fox Memorial Foundation, Providing a helping hand to turn inspiration into accomplishment. See more possibilities … see more promise… see more progress.

Today we are learning about Taylor’s Heroes – a non-profit organization that provides fitness and nutrition programs to children who want to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle. 

We are joined by Leslie Forbert Miller, co-founder and President of Taylor's Heroes; and Beverly Benifer, Taylor’s Heroes new Health Coach, a practicing Physical Therapist and owner of Karmic Synergy.

If you are so inclined, and your legs are up to it, you could bicycle all the way from lower Manhattan to Albany with the help of a new booklet that outlines the routes and the points of interest along the way. The booklet, Cycling the Hudson Valley - A Guide to History, Art and Nature on the East and West Sides of the Majestic Hudson River, is published by Parks and Trails New York. Martin Daley is the organization’s project manager. He spoke with WAMC’s Brian Shields.
