Residents of the Southeast Georgia Health System Senior Care Centers hailed
the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi with their own version of the Olympic
Games on Friday, Feb. 7.
Assembled into groups representing the teams of different countries, residents
from Senior Care Center-St. Marys joined residents at Senior Care Center-Brunswick
for the day-long "Senior Olympics." The event began with a torch
run through the facility, followed by an opening ceremony, games and lunch,
and culminated with a closing ceremony and medal distribution. Games included
the popular balloon volleyball, rifle target shooting (using a toy rifle),
wheelchair races, shuffle board, and hockey goal shooting.
The games and team competition were designed to challenge the residents
to be physically active and socially engaged.
