Volunteering with the Senior Games gave me a new perspective about the value of sports as a means of motivating people to become and remain physically active for life. The athletes I met were such an inspiration. They were so clearly enjoying life to the fullest. I felt compelled to tell everyone I knew about my positive experience with the Senior Games & to urge loved ones to not let age get in the way of living a healthy, active life. The Senior Games provided a welcome relief from the media stereotypes of decrepit seniors who spend all their time focused on their ailments. The athletes at the Senior Games were a testament to joyful living--at any age.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
all great people--friendly and dedicated.
