Hello Friends and New Members!
I am delighted to invite you to our website! Whether you have been around for a while or are brand new to our site, please take a look at this blog and see how you can participate and enjoy this community. I am posting some recent photos to help you get acquainted with some of the folks in our classes and some of our recent events.
Here are some things you can do on Rising UP!
Invite Friends: Invite friends you know to become members. Share invitations on the website (the invite button is in the box on the upper right.) Invite friends on Facebook and Twitter too! Here's a message you can send:
Check out Rising UP!, a website for overcomers. Make friends. Share info about life's health, joys and challenges. www.annayork.ning.com.
Two classes come together for an ABC-TV shoot! Rising UP! folks come in all sizes, shapes and abilities!
Find Members Who Share Your Interests: To find people who share your interests, go to the Blogs tab and use the search box, inserting topics such as "arthritis" or "senior life." A list of people with similar interest will come up and you can get the conversation going. Invite them to be a friend (in the box on the left) and strike up a conversation.
Once you are friends, you can put comments on a member's wall or you can send them a direct, private message. Share health tips and information. Would you like to hear something from the heart? Ask a question that really matters to you.
