June Community Captain of the Month: Husband and Wife Duo Ken Toney and Jorene Soto

Husband and Wife Duo Ken and Jorene stay Active together!

Our June Community Captain of the month highlights an Active SWV power couple, Ken Toney and Jorene Soto.  After marrying in 2005, they moved to WV from VA and purchased the Ponderosa Lodge in Fayette County.  Though they don’t always lead programs together, you will often see them doing hikes or running signature events as a pair. 

These two stay active to “stay fit, happy, and healthy into older age.” Ken and Jorene are also required to submit annual physical fitness tests for military service. 

They are able to stay motivated and active by mixing up activities, doing things they enjoy, and finding new challenges.  Some examples of their many activities are long hikes, yoga, and Stand-up Paddle boarding.  Being active is a priority to help avoid chronic disease that often comes with aging. 

Ken and Jorene saw and believed in the work that Active SWV was doing in their community, and decided to volunteer with the organization.  Ken and Jorene would recommend anyone get involved and attend programs with Active SWV because it has something for everyone.  In their words, “the people are fun, and it’s a nice group to meet people with similar interests.”  The family who is active together stays active! 

Stay tuned to see what this couple has planned for the month of June.  Check our website calendar for details on all programs.
