Event Description:

Age of Champions is the uplifting story of a group of athletes—a 100-year-old tennis champion, 86-year-old pole vaulter, octogenarian swimmers, and team of basketball grandmothers—all chasing gold at the National Senior Games. Win or lose, they’re living proof it’s never too late to become a champion.

Watch the film and sit in on a panel sharing experiences and reflecting on athleticism and competition for seniors. Panelists include University of Indianapolis professors Constance McCloy, Ed.D., owner of Fitness and More for Seniors, Margaret Burlingame, and local senior athletes. Local senior-sporting organizations will also be on hand to share information.
