John Coolang of Element Care, which operates the senior centers, said the competition that’s been running since 2011 is a great way for seniors to interact and socialize with others from across the region. “I think for the participants it gives them a chance to meet other participants in the organization and compete and have fun.”

Meanwhile, Joe from Methuen said meeting other people is great, but so is competing. “Every muscle in my body tingles,” he said. “I look forward to this every year, and I will look forward to it for the rest of my life.”
