A total of 260 senior residents from 17 Villages across the state participated in games and activities sponsored by Humana.

THE RESULTS ARE IN!

Presbyterian Villages of Michigan (PVM) recently hosted the 2021 Village Victory Cup, which inspires participation and good sportsmanship among our residents each year. The Village Victory Cup, sponsored by Humana, is part of an overall wellness initiative that provides ongoing support and encouragement to promote healthy aging.

The Village Victory Cup combats social isolation and provides inspiration for aging well. The Cup games were played at 17 participating PVM Villages across the state. Residents at all levels of fitness aptitude participated with an emphasis on creativity as well as arts and culture. Residents worked together as a team to collect points from various activities, which included the Beanbag Toss, Hoop Shoot, Wordsmith, a 50-yard Wellness Walk, Expression of Wellness and Kick-a-Roo.

A coveted Spirit Award also was presented to the PVM Village that demonstrated the strongest spirit and enthusiasm. Communities entered the Spirit Award contest by submitting a video of their residents displaying their spirit.

The Village Victory Cup winners include: The Village of Westland won first place with a total of 551 points. The Village of Oakland Woods in Pontiac won second place with 542 points, and The Village of Hampton Meadows in Bay City won third place with 460 points. The winner of the Spirit Award was The Village of Oakland Woods.

A total of 260 seniors participated: 23 residents were under the age of 64; 87 residents were 65-74 years of age; 81 residents were 75-84 years of age; 33 residents were 85-89 years of age; 23 residents were 90 years of age or older, with 13 residents of unknown age. In light of the ongoing pandemic, the games and events were conducted remotely at each Village location.

Congratulations to all the Village Victory Cup participants for a rousing competition and for engaging in an annual highlight for PVM! Many thanks to Humana for making this important event possible.
