Triathlon Fund Raiser

Kit participated in a mini-triathlon to raise money for the Sudanese Education Fund. As part of a team, she swam the first leg of the race - her teammates cycled and ran. It was an incredible experience!

Hats Off to a Local Employer!

Speaking of The Age Advantage, as I often do, check out this rare example of enlightened corporate leadership:

Greater Boston with Emily Rooney's (WGBH) June 10, 2010

Vita Needle, of Needham, is a small manufacturer of medical devices staffed by people 65 +. Some are in their 80s and 90s! CEO Frederick Hartman hires exclusively part-timers, guaratees their jobs, and offers salaries, flexible schedules and profit sharing.

He totally gets it!
