The COVID-19 pandemic has created difficult times for the residents of The Wesley Community and has impacted our organization which cares for them. This health crisis has created costs beyond Wesley’s normal operating budget and we need your help. The Wesley Community is home to those who have done so much for our community during their lifetimes. It’s time for all of us to now step up and be there for them when they need us most.

Set a Goal. Get Moving. Make a Difference.

Virtually Travel the distance of one of three popular trails in Adirondack Park!

Share a Step for Seniors is our virtual fitness event that invites individuals of all ages to set a mileage goal for the week of June 19th through June 26th. You can get your mileage in with a walk outside, a bike ride around the neighborhood or a run on the treadmill, just make sure you log it! Take pictures of each exercise and tag us on Facebook or Instagram with #shareastep to show your progress and challenge others to stay accountable.
