AGE IS JUST A NUMBER
AND YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN A NUMBER!
The Wisdom Warrior Challenge (WWC) is a unique track event for senior living communities! What started as 19 seniors training together for a local 5K now involves more than 1,000+ participants in a national competition! And it’s absolutely FREE to every participant thanks to our generous sponsors!
Participating senior communities are given all the tools required to host a WWC track event for their residents that will earn them points in both a local and national competition!
Qualifying is easy – participants must be 55 years of age or older and able to repeat the statement: “Age is just a number, and I am so much more than a number!”
The competition is broken down into several different distances and various age categories – including a wheelchair division! Participants receive stocked up swag bags, t-shirts, and medals.
The WWC is a fantastic opportunity to engage senior community residents in health and wellness programs, as well as involve the local community through sponsorships, awards ceremonies and vendor expos!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING!
What went through your mind as your crossed over the finish line?
"I really didn't think I was going to be in the race because I had a back problem. I said 'well, let me sign up for the shortest one' and uh... I came in second! I started walking and I just developed into a run! Then I won 2 events!"
- Fred U.
What would you say to someone who is thinking about participating in WWC?
"It leaves you with a great sense of accomplishment! It was a nice experience. When I got my medal, I was proud as punch!"
- Naomi R.
How has participating in WWC changed your life?
"I think the main thing about it is it's an incentive to get going. I continue to walk to this day! I walk about 2 miles, some days more, some days less."
