Use a screening of the film to kick off a friendly ping pong tournament in a local assisted living or senior citizen community center.

Commit to helping one elder in your family or community live a healthier life by taking regular walks with him or her, preparing healthy meals with or for him or her and scheduling activities involving physical movement. Consider developing a "buddy system" within your organization, religious group (such as members of a church, synagogue or mosque) or neighborhood to pair an older person with a younger person.

Interview local senior athletes and share their stories via local media and/or online outlets such as blogs or video sharing sites.
