National Senior Olympic Stars coming to Denver
Denver, Colo. — Denver Human Services and City Councilwoman Peggy Lehmann are hosting the “Become Their Champion” event from 9 a.m. – noon on June 14 at the Eisenhower Recreation Center. This free event will feature Age of Champions documentary, hands-on workshops, interactive resource fair , and continental breakfast.
During the event, “Age of Champions” will be shown. This Documentary features five competitors who sprint, leap, and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. It highlights a 100-year-old tennis champion, an 86-year-old pole vaulter, and rough-and tumble basketball grandmothers as they discover the power of the human spirit and triumph over the limitations of age.
Along with the film, the Become Their Champion event will feature an interactive resource fair with information about services available for caregivers and seniors. Guests also have the opportunity to attend two free workshops aimed at providing useful tips to help aging adults plan for the future, and how to protect assets from the latest scams.
This event is free to the public and is being coordinated to observe World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. People that plan to attend are asked to RSVP to Denver Human Services at 720-944-2649 or ProtectSeniors@denvergov.org.
