Birmingham is proud to host the 30th anniversary of the 2017 National Senior Games presented by Humana. The National Senior Games will bring over 10,000 athletes, ages 50+, to compete in 19 different sporting events over two weeks in June. A projected 3,000 volunteers will be needed to ensure the success of the games. The Senior Games are going to be a great way to showcase the Magic City on a national scale and really will highlight why Birmingham is such a special place, and that all starts with getting great volunteers.
