“Our motto of “Everyone Wins” refers to all the participants, volunteers, spectators, sponsors, businesses and local residents who will benefit from the staging of this year’s competition. With possibly the most significant “win” being the motivation and admiration we all experience watching the many physically active and socially engaged seniors in action making these years the best years of their life.”
– Milt Kruger
