100-year-old woman throws first pitch at Healthier Communities Day with the Everett AquaSox on July 26

Published August 3, 2015

Last Sunday, July 26, The Providence Institute for a Healthier Community hosted Healthier Communities Day with the AquaSox, encouraging local organizations to band together and support a healthier community. In honor of healthy living, Providence Institute for a Healthier Community invited a Providence caregiver's great-grandmother, Alice Dobson, to throw the first pitch.

Alice celebrated her 100th birthday the week before the game. Even at 100 years old, Alice keeps her mind and body active by going to work every single day. She also is known as a life-long healthy eater by growing and canning her own food. Alice awed the crowd with her pitch and followed it up by reaching down and touching her toes. Alice said, "Anybody can throw a baseball but not just anyone can touch their toes- especially at 100."

Thank you to everyone who attended this year's Providence Day at the park with Providence Institute for a Healthier Community.
