@n566192l They've been represented at each of the six state level games we've competed at so far. I understand from other athletes that local AARP offices across the country are good about supporting the senior games. I think this is important and fitting outreach, and wanted to make sure they saw that it was appreciated. Smiley Happy

AARP South Dakota handed out lip balm to athletes competing in the 2018 South Dakota Senior Games. The perfect swag, inho. I immediately put mine into use and held onto it throughout the competition. Thanks again, AARP!

Seriously, you guys rock. We're always happy to see you at the state level senior games. Smiley Happy

 

Though the medals are a nice cap to the effort, (I now have fifteen 1st place wins) ours are stuck in a drawer. It has always been meeting and chatting with other senior athletes that makes these events such a treat for us. And of course the motivation to stay in shape.

 

Photos on the Nebraska Senior Games? Why sure. Here's a handful of photos showing some of the events:

Thank you for the kind feedback, @Epster. (We might be blusing just a little.) We have terrific support in the states. 

 

We'd love to see some candid photos of our events if you have any to share?

I'd like to thank AARP for their continued support of the state level Senior Games. I've competed in 15 races in 3 states --some events with 11,000 athletes and others with 200-- and AARP was there at every one. Sometimes it's an information booth, sometimes it's information or swag in the athlete's welcome package, and lots of times they publish articles about various inspiring athletes either on the national website or on individual state sites.

 

We're just back from the Nebraska State Games and, of course, AARP was there supporting the athletes, this time with a fun tote bag. AARP, I want you to know that it is greatly appreciated. Smiley Happy

 

Thanks!
