The Show Must Go On! Nothing Stops the Village Victory Cup

We are all familiar with that legendary Broadway phrase: “The show must go on!” That has never been more true than during these times. PVM residents and our Wellness teams were not about to let the pandemic get in the way of The Village Victory Cup (VVC) and the joy and vibrancy which comes with it! Congratulations to all who participated! We have heard from many of you that participating in the games was a welcome distraction and injected some well-deserved fun into your lives during a very trying time.

Despite this global pandemic and having to move to a virtual environment, 15 adventuresome PVM communities participated in the 2020 edition of the VVC. Moving to a virtual environment was made possible in part thanks to generous support from Humana, Huntington Bank, the Lee & Maxine Peck Foundation, the Mary Thompson Foundation and the Village Club Foundation.

During the months of September, October and November participating communities played the games that comprise the Village Victory Cup at their communities while following all necessary protocols. They reported their results via an online scoring system during the month of December.

A total of 256 residents participated: 10% were under the age of 65; 27% were 65-74 years of age; 26% 75-84 years of age; 11% were 85-89 years of age; 11% were 90 years of age or older, with 15% of unknown age.

In the end, The Village of East Harbor came out on top with a total of 653.5 points. Not too far behind them was The Village of Westland (a former VVC champion) with 617.83 points. In third place was last year’s champion, The Village of Oakland Woods, with 556.33 points. The winner of the Spirit Award was The Village of Redford. Communities entered the Spirit Award contest by submitting a video of their residents displaying their spirit.

“Embrace The Possibilities” has been PVM’s mantra over many years. The Village Victory Cup exhibits this very well. Perhaps it could be said “Embrace the Possibilities at any age and in any circumstances.” Thanks to all the VVC participants for reminding us that the show must go on!
