Comox Valley Seniors Village and Casa Loma residents compete in Pioneer Olympics

Teams of seniors from Community Living and Complex Care met at Timberline School in Campbell River, May 14, to compete in the Pioneer Olympics.

The teams challenged each other in Lifesaver toothpick races, bean bag toss, bolo toss, horseshoes, basketball, and polo.

The competition was fierce, the excitement was palpable and the athletes, staff and volunteers had great fun.

In the Community Living division, the Retirement Concepts Rebels from Casa Loma and Comox Valley Seniors Villages, took home the first-place trophy. Campbell River’s Ironwood Place Hopefuls were second, and the Perky Penguins, from the Adult Care Society in Campbell River placed third.

In the Complex Care division, the Sunrisers from New Horizons in Campbell River took home the first-place trophy. The Energizers from the Yucalta Lodge were second and the Green Berets from Evergreen Seniors Home in Campbell River was third.

“Thank you to everyone who contributes to the success of this great event. Our athletes are already in training to win back the trophy next May,” said Retirement Concepts community relations manager, Miranda Sorenson.
