It’s time to get the sneakers out.
The gruelling training schedules, the fitness regimes and the strict diets are all a part of the daily routine now.
Tough times are ahead; but as a team they can do it!
Athletes from Anglican Care are now in final preparations for the biggest sporting event of the year, the 3rd Annual Seniors Olympics, presented by the Anglican Care Olympic Committee.
The games will commence at 10am on Wednesday 8th March 2017 at Club Macquarie. This fun event is the focus of Anglican Care’s celebrations as a part of the annual NSW Seniors Festival.
Anglican Care’s talented athletes are aged between 80 and 100 years – but don’t let their age fool you into thinking the games won’t be ultra-competitive! They will represent their pre-selected country in a series of highly contested events, including bean bag toss, lawn bowls, golfing, ten pin bowling, and Olympic trivia.
As the eyes and ears on the ground, Anglican Care lifestyle & wellbeing staff will be keeping a keen eye on residents and consumers; for any performance enhancing supplements or any fellow competitor doping!
The games are scheduled to begin at 10am, followed by the official medal ceremony at 12pm by NBN’s very own dare devil Gavin Morris.
“We’re making sure that our competitors are eating well, getting enough rest and taking their performance enhancing supplements….but nothing illegal of course!” said Chef de Mission and Anglican Care’s Marketing Manager, Kylie Jacques.
“Anglican Care’s Seniors Olympics is a highlight in many of the residents’ calendars – this is a must win for our residents! But on the serious side the Olympics are an opportunity for our residents to participate in physical activities as well as some fun and laughter which is always good for the soul and your health,” said Kylie.
Anglican Care is one of the largest and most innovative providers of community and aged care services providing excellent care and enhanced lifestyles to seniors throughout the Hunter, Central Coast and Manning Regions of NSW.
