Oregon used to be one of only two states that did not have a sanctioned "Senior Games."

 

The Oregon Senior Games comes to Bend in June of 2014.

 

It will be 14 sports in 14 venues for men and women 50 years and above.

 

Visit Bend's Kevney Dugan says ever since the news leaked out - people are stepping up to help put the event together.  “It's going to be a massive undertaking. But I’m really excited. You know since we announced this the amount of people who have come out in support of this; Bend Parks and Rec have been very supportive of this. There's a lot going on with the Senior Center and some developments there that will happen over the next 5 years. And they're really excited about supporting their senior community."

 

Dugan says they estimate about 500 competitors for the first year; but believes it will grow to several thousand over time.

 

Oregon Senior Games are open to people in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
