After not being able to run the 2020 LiveLighter Aged Care Games due to COVID, the amazing efforts of the WA Government and General Community enabled SRCWA to run the “SRCWA Rockingham LiveLighter Aged Care Games 2021”. The Games were held at the Baldivis Recreation Centre off Fifty Road on Thursday 26th August. Despite the inclement weather, seven teams enthusiastically took part in a range of games developed specifically for seniors who may require care.
Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels welcomed all participants to the games and officially declared the 2021 SRCWA Rockingham LiveLighter Aged Care Games open. Thank you, Barry, for your support of this unique fun event for seniors.
