From July 11 to August 7, a team of five residents at Asbury Methodist Village was going strong in the first-ever Asbury Games, an Olympics-inspired competition to log the most hours of fitness-related activity in one month.
The 2016 Asbury Games is the first-ever system-wide wellness competition between Asbury’s continuing care retirement communities located in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma and Tennessee. When the competition ended, the five teams had logged more than 1,900 hours of fitness activity! Asbury Methodist Village’s team of five men and women logged 420 hours, coming in second to Asbury Solomons in Calvert County, Md.
Running, walking, hiking, swimming, fitness classes – everything counted in the fight for the title. The results put to rest the stereotype that retirees spend their days taking it easy. But we already knew that!
The winners received $500 to be donated to a charity of their choice. It’s a great way to combine Asbury’s focus on senior wellness and our Mission to do all the good we can.
