Join or Start a Moai
Thursday, February 7, 2019
You can live longer, better by starting or joining a Moai® - and help your friends too! They’re social groups that gather for a common purpose and support positive, healthy behaviors. They’re walking, cooking, eating and more. And they’re making healthy choices easier for everyone.
Find Support & Positive Energy
The word “Moai” comes from Okinawa, Japan, where neighbor groups traditionally join and support each other in times of need. Okinawa is one of the original Blue Zones®, identified by researchers as home to some of the world’s longest-living people. People who feel connected and supported in their communities are happier, have fewer health problems and live longer than those who don’t.
Two Ways to Moai:
Start your own Moai
- Choose a fun, positive activity for your group
- Register your Moai at bchd.org/moai
- Connect and invite friends to join
