Congratulations to our Monash and Ainslie residents for their outstanding performance at the YMCA Senior Sports Carnival 2018! Monash came second overall, while Ainslie clinched second position in javelin. Over 200 residents from aged care villages across Canberra participated in the games.
The Senior Sports Carnival has been running since 2002 with the aim to promote health and wellbeing among Canberra’s senior citizens, as well as to uplift their physical skills, self-esteem, and engagement within the community. It consists of various sporting events, modified to the ability and mobility needs of seniors.
Wendy Swan, Activities Officer Ainslie, said, “All the hard work and efforts at training paid off for us at the event. We all really had a memorable time”.
