The Great Age Movement Organization launched its debut to the City of Houston on June 4th, 2017, at the St. Regis Hotel (major sponsor), with a sold out jazz luncheon. Our first fundraiser broke the $50,000 mark thanks to the generosity of Houstonians, local businesses (Houston Magazine & Four Seasons Hotel Houston), and national corporate sponsor (Carlson Wagonlit Travel). 

We are raising funds to build senior playgrounds in our communities and create sustainable pathways from senior living centers and individual homes to our local/private parks through outdoor exercise classes run by G.A.M. volunteers. This is just the beginning of our new movement to energize seniors.
