All over the world there are "BLUE ZONES" where people live long, healthy, active, socially-connected fun lives. BJAAC can be YOUR BLUE ZONE... and your path to a livelier, more enjoyable life of play, fun, fitness & friendship. But you need "to get in the game & play" to WIN. And believe us, EVERYONE WHO PLAYS, WINS. There are NO LOSERS. As long as you participate you'll benefit and be a WINNER. And the biggest winners are always the FIRST TIMERS, the NOVICES, the folks new to the game. So pick a sport, any sport, and give it a shot. Really, you've got absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE, and EVERYTHING TO GAIN! This is the encouraging message Robert Sweetgall will bring to Sun City when he opens BJAAC on October 18th in our opening ceremonies. Be there! Because this is one senior games opening you don't want to miss. And by the way, all senior gamers, who attend opening ceremonies, will receive a FREE copy of Robert's new book, One Heart, Two Feet ... a true life saver! That's another thing you really don't want to miss!

The FREE One Heart, Two Feet book. Here's the one book that can lead you to a healthier, livelier, more enjoyable life. Just don't survive - thrive -- with the best walking programs in a fun read with smart weight loss strategies and a sensible, SIMPLE nutritional plan that you can actually live with for life. Strategies for improved energy & sleep with lower stress, worry & fatigue presented by America's leading walking advocate, Robert Sweetgall and America's top cardiac rehab specialist, Dr. Barry Franklin. Note, this $13 life-saver book is a FREE health gift to all BJAAC participants coming to Robert Sweetgall's opening address. Robert will also autograph copies on Friday, October 18th.

"If you choose to read only one health-related book, this is the one." -Neil Gordon, MD, PhD, MPH Chairmen & CEO, INTERVENT International , Savannah, GA

This is the official web site of the Beaufort Jasper Active Adult Challenge. Please check back often as information will be added and updated throughout the year leading up to the games in the fall. Updates will include information about events, venues, registration, etc.

The main vision of the games is to inspire seniors to stay active, promote health, well-being and to provide a true sense of fellowship within the counties. The games are not all about winning. The value of the games goes far beyond the glory of receiving medals. One remembers the fun and camaraderie of the moment and the friendships that evolve. The vision of BJAAC (Beaufort Jasper Active Adult Challenge) is to have all Beaufort and Jasper County seniors create and maintain a healthy, physical, and emotional lifestyle.

Triathlon is a cycle, run or walk, and swim event held at Sun City. You can sign up for an individual triathlon or team triathlon. It is open to all Beaufort and Jasper County residents and their guests! The event is electronically timed for both starting and ending times. Event rules can be found under event rules - Triathlon.
