Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS), the largest private oncology/hematology practice in the Southeast, proudly served as one of the top sponsors for the 2005 Atlanta Senior Olympics, which were held May 13-17. The Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta hosted the Games and is in partnership with the United States Olympic Committee.
Dr. Bruce Feinberg, President and CEO of GCS, said the practice was excited to support the event.
“As the average life-expectancy in America continues to increase, it’s critical that we stress the importance of staying fit, which is why we are thrilled to have been a part of the Atlanta Senior Olympics,” he said.
Those interested in taking part needed to be at least 50 years old to participate in the events, which included track and field, swimming, tennis, basketball, cycling, race walking, archery, table tennis, billiards, and poker.
Several thousand people from metro Atlanta competed.
The motto this year was “Fifty+, Fit & Fun.”
