Senior Games

Mid-Carolina Senior Games, held annually in the spring, is part of a network of 53 local games that provide statewide health promotion and wellness programs for adults age 50 years of age and better. The local games provide senior residents of Cumberland County, Harnett County and Sampson County the opportunity to participate in wellness workshops, health fairs, Silver Striders Walking Clubs, Silver Arts, exercise classes and special social events throughout the year.

For the athlete there are more than 25 various sporting events and the Silver Arts offer categories in visual arts, literary arts, heritage arts and the performing arts. Medal winners qualify for the North Carolina Senior Games State Finals held each Fall in Raleigh and every two years the US Seniors Sports Classic, The Senior Olympics are held.
