  • Sports

Just five months until the 55+ BC Seniors Games in Burnaby, Aug. 21-25, its 25th anniversary. Burnaby is a warm-up for the BC Seniors Games coming to Kamloops in 2013. Time to begin training for your favourite activity and belong to an organization that promotes good mental and physical health, camaraderie and a sense of accomplishment.

Recreational activity increases energy levels; reduces the risk of diseases such as heart, diabetes and osteoporosis; builds stronger bones and muscles; helps maintain a healthy weight; enhances your concentration; increases self-esteem; helps you relax and reduces stress; helps you sleep better; and gives you the opportunity to spend time with friends and make new friends.

If you are not currently involved in a sport or recreational pursuit and just want to investigate how the BC Seniors Games Society can help you, call registrar Russ Reid at 250-374-8140.
