LeBron inspires brain fitness exercise

UPublish story by Paula Hartman-Stein, Ph.D.

A community-based club in Kent, Ohio, of older adults age 67 to 87, who are dedicated to healthy aging, composed poetry in honor of LeBron James as a brain stretching exercise.

They used the traditional 5,7,5 syllables of a three line Japanese Haiku form:

Racing across court

LeBron shouted victory

Knowing he was home!

Screaming out their lungs

Fans exploded with sheer joy

Dreaming of playoffs!

This collaborative effort illustrates that LeBron has inspired community spirit in creative ways for all ages.
