Lin Carlson  
Lin Carlson, 2014 Medalist
Lin has demonstrated how selfless she can be by giving her time and expertise to help seniors maintain healthy lifestyles. She decided to develop methods to teach healthy habits and provide exercise classes. For over ten years, Lin has been teaching these classes to seniors with no monetary compensation or other payment.

The amount of time Lin has sacrificed for others is significant. For ten years she has taught classes three times a week at her church, and for four and a half years she has been teaching an additional four classes for the Friends for Learning organization. Lin is so dedicated to fitness that she continued to teach through her husband’s illness and death. Lin is such a giving person that other than the exercise classes, she plays her electric guitar with others at the nursing home every two months.
