Zimmer Sponsors Winter National Senior Games
Date:9/29/2011

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmer Holdings, Inc. joined the National Senior Games Association to launch the 2011 Zimmer Winter National Senior Games.

As a global leader in musculoskeletal health, Zimmer is proud to join with the National Senior Games Association to showcase the athletic achievements of 356 athletes assembled for this year's winter games.

"We applaud the athletes at this year's games as they demonstrate what can be achieved by embracing an active lifestyle," said Jeffery A. McCaulley, President, Zimmer Reconstructive. "The dedication and spirit of these athletes is an inspiration for everyone at Zimmer as we work to develop innovative and personalized technologies that help restore mobility and renew active lifestyles for seniors all around the world."  

The Winter National Senior Games were created to promote healthy lifestyles for seniors through education, fitness and sports. Athletes will compete in four sporting events from September 29 through October 2, including curling, ice hockey, pickleball and speedskating. To qualify, athletes must be at least 50 years of age as of December 31, 2010.

"We are thrilled by the energy and excitement of our participants this year," said Clay Harris, Manager of Marketing and Sponsor Relations for the National Senior Games Association, the not-for-profit facilitator of the Winter National Senior Games. "The games encourage a healthy lifestyle, helping people stay active at a time when physical activity is particularly important."

Regular physical activity has been shown to reduce morbidity and mortality from many chronic diseases.  However, despite the well-known benefits of physical activity, many senior adults lead a sedentary lifestyle.  Data from the National Health Interview Survey shows that nearly four in ten adults report no participation in leisure-time physical activity, and these numbers increase as people age.
