SEICC Moosomin LTC Olympic games
It was a sight to see – recreation staff at the SEICC Moosomin Long Term Care (LTC) facility, pushing each other around in a wheelchair throughout the resident’s dining rooms, holding and passing a homemade Olympic torch.
That is how they kicked off the SEICC Moosomin LTC Olympic games. The next day, their 2016 Summer Olympics began.
They competed in individual events and one team event in the afternoon. The events included: javelin toss (using pool noodles), ladder ball, paper plane toss, puzzle challenges, stacking apples, darts with nerf guns, Frisbee toss through Olympic rings made out of hula hoops, a rubber duck shoot out, sticky situation – bouncing a ping pong ball onto an open face peanut butter sandwich – and chair hockey.
The gold medal trophy went to Harvest Haven with a total of 2,069 points. Silver went to Poppy Place with a total of 1,901 points. The bronze trophy winner was Crocus Cove with 1,768 points. And last, but not least, The Better Luck Next Year trophy went to Whispering Pines house with a total of 1,425. Each trophy now sits on the fire mantel in its house until next year.
