How far will you go? Fast or slow doesn’t matter.

Non-Competitive Walking – Walking is good medicine! It builds “staying power” and improves the health of the heart and circulatory system, lowers blood pressure, and reduces the risk of stroke. Even starting with a few minutes of walking per day can get you on the road to improved health. And if you walk on a regular basis, it can significantly improve your quality of life. What better venue for a nice walk in the middle of winter than our hallways. For fun and fitness on the opening day of our Seniors Games we’ve got a full mile marked out for anyone wanting to go the distance (special recognition for the distances completed). With our lively music playing to keep you motivated you may wish to dance your way through the halls! All participants receive a complimentary t-shirt to wear during the week.

Bowling will take place in all of the majestic theatres.

Bowling – Whether you are an expert or wanting to try something new, either way join us for an exciting and challenging bowling experience. Wii bowling is a remarkable video game that provides fun, laughter and exercise! It lets you play a game of bowling in front of a large format television screen – move about, test your coordination, and compete against other bowlers.

Medals – Local Gold, Silver & Bronze medals will be presented in each Residence at a special presentation end of day. These medalists will be entered in the national finals with the top three in the nation receiving National Gold, Silver or Bronze medals at our awards Closing Ceremony.
