Inspiring film about senior Olympians to premier at Lutheran Home at Concord Reserve

"Age of Champions" is the uplifting story of five competitors who sprint, leap and swim for gold at the National Senior Olympics. You’ll meet a 100-year-old tennis champion, an 86-year-old pole vaulter and some rough-and-tumble basketball grandmothers who battle to overcome the limitations of age and discover the resilience of the human spirit.

Seasoned citizens, family caregivers and senior care professionals won't want to miss this entertaining one-hour movie. The film premiered to a standing ovation at the prestigious Silverdocs Film Festival and was hailed by the Washington Post as “infectiously inspiring.”

The senior life community of the Lutheran Home at Concord Reserve (LHCR), located at 2116 Dover Center Road in Westlake, is hosting six free screenings of the film, over the course of three days at the end of June in the Concord Movie Theater on the campus' Main Street.

The "Age of Champions" film will be shown on Tuesday, June 25; Wednesday, June 26; and Thursday, June 27, at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on all three days. Complimentary popcorn will be provided. Members of the community are invited to come for the movie – then stay for lunch. The LHCR Field House Café serves homemade soup, fresh salads, sandwiches, wraps, cookies, ice cream and daily specials at reasonable prices. The Café is open for lunch beginning at 11 a.m. Church groups, book clubs and other organizations are welcome. Tours of the LHCR facility will be available upon request.

The movie is FREE to all and is wheelchair accessible, but seating is limited to 30 guests per showing. To RSVP, or for further information, please contact Janice Snyder, Mission Outreach Liaison, at 440-847-1031 or via email at
