ONLINE FIRST Host community sought for 2013-14 BC Seniors Games

With an eye on fitness and fun, bid packages have been sent to 62 municipalities throughout British Columbia for the 2013-14 BC Seniors Games.

The BC Seniors Games Society is asking mayors and community leaders to step up and be part of this exciting opportunity for athletes 55-plus. The multi-sport Games bring as many as 3,500 participants to the host communities and regions. Sports range from ice hockey to cribbage to soccer.

The BC Seniors Games Society is a volunteer, non-profit society whose mission statement is to improve the health, lifestyle and image of all 55-plus British Columbians. The society carries out its mandate in two principal ways:

• by organizing the BC Seniors Games as an annual opportunity for seniors to participate in physical and social activities;

• by proactively portraying a contemporary image of seniors as physically fit and socially engaged.

By defining the unique needs of this participant group, the society serves as a bridge between the 55 years and older population and provincial and local sports organizations and recreation departments.
