Celebrate Active Aging Week!

Active Aging Week is being celebrated this week – September 22-28, 2013!

This week provides an opportunity for motivated organizations to reach out to aging adults and support their efforts to remain active, healthy and engaged. Our elders play a key role in our communities and our lives and this week’s participating organizations endeavor to keep our aging adults participating in our community for years to come through wellness endeavors. Check out local organizations, such as Brightmore of Wilmington, to learn about some of the events going on locally and join in the cause!

Aptly timed, perhaps, the Wilmington Senior Softball Association recently sent four local teams to Raleigh to compete in the recent NC State Senior Games. All four clubs brought home medals! The 65-age group and 70-age group both brought home gold medals, while the 60-age group team brought home a silver medal and the 75-age group a bronze medal. Of course, we can not only be proud of the medals and victories these teams accomplished, but also the members’ dedication to their own continuing activity, health and wellness in their later years.

Congratulations to the members of the Wilmington Senior Softball Association and to all those other aging adults who choose to remain active and dedicated to their continuing wellness (both physically as well as socially)!
