Delaware Senior Games commence September 4

AZ employee Linda Jarjisian will compete in four different Track and Field events as part of the Delaware Senior Games. In 2011, she qualified to compete in the National Senior Games in Houston, Texas.

Beginning September 4, athletes age 50 and over will compete in 30 different sports at the Delaware Senior Olympics (DSO).

The events – which are free to the public – will be held at sports venues such as Schutte Park in Dover, Del. and Banning Park in Wilmington, Del.

In addition to the competitive events, there are dozens of non-competitive healthy activities held at various venues throughout the state, including the Senior Group Challenge and Walk Delaware.

The Senior Group Challenge encourages as many seniors as possible to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and exercise. The Walk Delaware event challenges seniors to walk a distance equal to the combined length and width of Delaware (131 Miles) in one year’s time. These are just two examples of special events where DSO members, families and friends can enjoy fellowship, fun and social interaction.

A full calendar of events is available by visiting The Delaware Senior Olympics event page. DSO, a non-profit member of the United States Olympic Committee, is dedicated to helping senior men and women lead a healthier and active lifestyle.

As a company committed to making a meaningful difference in patient health, AstraZeneca is proud to support the Delaware Senior Olympics. We’re also proud of the AstraZeneca employees who are competing at Senior Olympics in their home states.

Every year, several AstraZeneca employees qualify to compete in the National Senior Games, the largest multi-sport event in the world for men and women age 50 and older. As a four-time Gold Member Sponsor of the National Senior Games, we look forward to the 2013 Summer National Senior Games, which will be held July 20 through August 5 in Cleveland, Ohio.
