Seniors

"Challenge Yourself" is the slogan for the 2014 Senior Games, to be held on Friday, June 20, at Peters Township High School, 264 E. McMurray Road, McMurray.

"The greatest challenges that we all face are the limits that we place upon ourselves," said Kathy Costantino, Washington County Supervisor for the Southwestern PA Area Agency on Aging, the sponsor for the annual Senior Games. "Everyone 50 years of age or older from Washington, Fayette, and Greene Counties, and individuals who belong to senior centers within these counties, are invited to challenge themselves by competing in the Senior Games."

The athletic events include the 50-yard dash, basketball toss, bocce, corn bag toss, football throw, horseshoes, one-mile walk, putting, shuffleboard, softball throw and stationary bike.

The opening ceremonies and the Parade of Athletes will begin at 9:30 a.m. All of the athletic and related events begin immediately after the opening ceremonies and continue until approximately 3 p.m.

Although there is no charge for admission to the Senior Games, there is a $1 registration fee to participate in each competitive event. The public is welcome and senior competitors are encouraged to bring their families to cheer them on and to enjoy the ongoing activities throughout the day, including a health fair with information, health screenings and prizes, the Variety Show Entertainment, Super Bingo, food and craft booths. The Pennsylvania Lottery Association will be giving scratch-off lottery tickets to each person 18 years of age or older who visits the lottery table at the health fair, and there will be a minimum of five 10-ticket drawing awards for seniors who register to win.

Joining the Southwestern PA Area Agency on Aging, Inc. in co-sponsoring this year's Senior Games are the Washington County Board of Commissioners and Aging Services of Washington County. In addition to the Pennsylvania Lottery, major civic and corporate sponsors include Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, UPMC for Life, Range Resources, Consol Energy, Coventry HealthAmerica, Hapchuk, Inc., Private James Perry VFW Post 191, Serenity Farms, Inc., and SeniorLIFE.

Official registration forms may be picked up at senior centers or Area Agency on Aging offices in Washington, Fayette and Greene Counties. Information and registration forms are also available by calling 1-888-300-2704 or 724-489-8080, ext. 4430, or by going online at www.swpa-aaa.org. Click on 'Senior Games' under 'Current Events.'
