North Carolina Senior Games began in 1983 with a vision to create a year-round health promotion and wellness education program for adults 50 years of age and better. Senior Games is a holistic approach to keeping the body, mind and spirit fit while enjoying the company of friends, family, spectators and volunteers.  

"Senior Games is about embracing aging and being never too old to play, to learn and to share." Gael Hogan
