Within the heart of a true athlete, the passion for sport only grows over time.
Perhaps nothing proves this better than the National Senior Games which was held in Minneapolis last year. The Games, a 19-sport, biannual competition for men and women 50 and over, is the largest multi-sport event in the world for seniors. For the serious athlete, Willow Valley Communities is an excellent environment, with world-class fitness and aquatics centers and exceptional fitness team members on hand to support whatever an individual’s personal goals may be.
Willow Valley’s national team of 15 athletes joined over 12,000 others from all over the country to compete. Escorted by members of our Wellness Team, Pam Schorr and Karen Nye, Willow Valley resident athletes were awarded a total of 7 medals and 12 ribbons at the National Senior Games.
Recently, over 50 Willow Valley athletes competed on the local level at the Lancaster Senior Games in early May, 2016 winning a total of 61 medals: 36-Gold, 14-Silver, and 11-Bronze.
Congratulations to all!
