Give Back To Your Community While Exercising. Volunteer.

Welcome to day 9 of the Possibilities Unlimited challenge, powered by support from Humana.

Staying active isn’t just exercising — it’s moving. And you can keep moving while making a difference. Consider volunteering.

If you love animals, one idea is to volunteer for an animal shelter walking dogs. It gets you outside, keeps you moving, and allows you to spend time with furry friends. Check with your local animal shelter to see if they need volunteers.

Another idea is to help clean up your local parks, cemeteries, lakes, or landmarks. This gets you in nature, helps you to meet new people with varying interests, and improves your community. Win-win-win!

Need more ideas? Here’s a list of 10 options for active volunteering. No matter what you choose to do here are some ethical considerations from the ANA Center for Ethics.
