AVON PARK — Now in its third decade, the Heartland Games have attracted hundreds of participants age 50 and over annually. The Heartland Games are one of 21 regional events held across Florida each year in which competitors can qualify to compete in the Florida Senior Games. Our local Games, aimed at residents of DeSoto, Hardee and Highlands counties, but open to any others who wish to join, are coordinated by the staff of the Corporate and Community Education Department of South Florida State College.
Most competitors may not know the women behind the scenes who organize the Heartland Games For Active Adults.
