Senior Games 2020 At-Home Edition was a success!

This has certainly been a trying year! The pandemic continues to affect so many aspects of our lives. Senior Games 2020 was held in a virtual / at-home capacity. The theme for 2020 was “The New Roaring Twenties” ­— an homage to the 1920s, also known as the Jazz Age or Flapper Era.

Check out LifeSpan’s Facebook to see all the fun and excitement. The Senior Games 2020 Photo Album is live via Flickr, and you can watch videos of our participants in-action and recordings of our twice-daily Zoom meet-ups via our YouTube channel, too! 

The Senior Games is the only community event in Southern Indiana specifically for active older adults! It emphasizes health and wellness with an array of fun, competitive events and entertainment for over 300 active older adults.

As a reminder about how the King & Queen are typically decided: At least 3 individuals of the same age/sex group must compete in an event in order for the medals to count toward the King or Queen title. Medals will count towards the “Most Medals” title. If there is a tie in # of medals, points determine the winner (Bronze 1, Silver 2, Gold 3). However, the king and queen were decided by drawing in 2020 for the Senior Games At-Home Edition.
