An inspiring story of a group of athletes – a 100-year-old tennis champion, an 86 year old pole vaulter, a pair of swimming brothers, and a team of basketball grandmothers – all chasing gold at the National Senior Games. The film captures the triumphant spirit of these seniors who tackle old age with grace, humor, and optimism. Win or lose, they are living proof that it’s never too late to become champions. A free will offering will be taken at this event in support of senior health programming within our community provided by Senior Neighbors and Oasis of Hope.
This event will be held on Friday, November 2, 2012 from 4:00 to 6:00 PM in the GRCC Applied Technology Center Auditorium. No RSVP is required.
