PHILADELPHIA, May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- May is Older Americans Month and Independence Blue Cross will once again cosponsor the Senior Games, held at dozens of locations throughout the five-county Philadelphia region. The games are usually a week long, and take place at various times in each county, beginning Monday, May 12 and continuing through the month of June. More than 2,000 seniors, ages 50 and older, are expected to show their commitment to staying physically and mentally fit by participating in the games.

The Senior Games were created in 1985 by the National Senior Games Association to promote a healthy, social, and active lifestyle among older adults. The first national games were held in 1987 in St. Louis, MO, with 2,500 participants. Games have been held every two years since throughout the U.S.

The games feature a wide variety of activities including swimming, running, golf, bowling, tennis, track and field, horseshoes, dance, shuffleboard, chess, scrabble, and more. They are sponsored by the Departments of Recreation and/or Services for the Aging in each county. Winners from counties throughout Pennsylvania will go on to compete in the state games in York, PA, which will be held July 22-27. State winners will be invited to participate in the next national Senior Games in 2009, which will take place in San Francisco, CA, and are expected to draw nearly 13,000 participants.

Independence Blue Cross (IBC) will also open the doors of its Walk-In Service Center on Monday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., for free health screenings geared toward seniors, including diabetic foot checks, and stroke and Alzheimer assessments.
