There were competitors in age categories of 50 plus, 60 plus, 70 plus and 80 and above. Medals were awarded to first, second and third place winners in each game.

The Spirit Award went to Heritage Healthcare of Quitman. “Most Athletic” was Ana Benson from Rock Creek Nursing and Rehab with a total of five medals. The 1K Race winners were: First Place Michael Smith, Second Place John Little and Third Place Ron Phillips.
