Home Instead Senior Care Community Service Representative John Bruinsma facilitated the showing of the documentary and the discussion that followed.
Age of Champions follows five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. It includes a 100-year-old tennis champion, an 86-year-old pole vaulter, and a team of rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers as they triumph over the limitations of age.
The Washington Post called the film “infectiously inspiring” and theater audiences across the country have fallen in love with its light-hearted take on growing older. It’s a powerful story to share with the whole family and get inspired to be healthier, happier, and more active.
Bruinsma pointed out the importance of staying engaged and active no matter what your age.
“It doesn’t even have to be sports,” stated Bruinsma. “Play cards, get together with friends and sing or do crafts. As long as you are interacting with others and having fun, that’s what is important.
