Let the Senior Olympics begin

Get those track suits ready it's time for the 5th Annual Senior Olympics!

This year, San Juan Nursing Home promises it will be the biggest ever with more than 250 people expected to participate.

Sandra Bansaldua and Josefina Suarez joined us on Sunrise to discuss the event.

They said are dedicated to improving the level of care for the elderly in our community in planning this year's annual Senior Olympics.

Through the power of sport, the Senior Olympics helps our participants bring out their very best while at the same time providing an opportunity to participate in the life of the extended community.

The games include walking and wheelchair races, distance throw, bean bag toss, and much more.

The event is October 18th, from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm in the visitor's parking lot of the San Juan Nursing Home.
