Many seniors in their 70s and 80s are shoveling snow because they don't have anyone to do it. They must get out to doctor appointments, and emergency vehicles may need to get to them. Shoveling raises your heart rate, which is good for a healthy person, but very bad for someone with health issues.
If you are a healthy outdoors type and would like to help someone in your area, please call Lynne Doyle at 225-3295. It's like joining a health club for free!
