RE/MAX Professional Realty of Exton recently donated funding to build a beach volleyball court for all Veterans at Coatesville Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC). The volleyball court offers alternative recreation encouraging an active lifestyle for our Veterans.

The new volleyball court officially opened on June 9, 2016 with a small dedication ceremony. Veterans who attended were treated to a meal and a lively game of volleyball with RE/MAX Professional Realty staff.

There is overwhelming evidence that people who lead active lifestyles are less likely to suffer from illness and more likely to live longer. Recent statistics revealed that less than half of U.S. adults get the amount of physical activity recommended in the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. The implementation of the National Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in 1992 shifted the focus for VA medical centers toward an all-encompassing preventive care initiative which includes programs which promote healthy living for chronic disease prevention through nine evidence-based healthy living strategies which include regular exercise and weight management.

"The generous donation from RE/MAX Professional Realty is an enhancement to our robust athletic program for the Veterans we serve," said Earl Johnson, Chief of Voluntary Service at Coatesville VAMC. "By making a commitment to healthy lifestyle changes, Veterans can learn to take control of their health."
