Olympics in Paradise

When the International Olympic Committee reaffirmed their commitment to move forward with the Tokyo Olympics in July and August of 2021 after a one-year delay, we decided the Olympic games at Paradise Valley Estates would go on, too.

Wellness planned and hosted a special two-week event called Olympics in Paradise.  During the Olympics, our residents and team members participated in friendly and fun competitions during a variety of social events.

Teams competed in sports such as pickleball, water volleyball, synchronized swimming and cornhole toss, as did individuals during events such as Wii bowling, Cyber cycle challenges and lap swim challenges.

The Wellness Team orchestrated an opening ceremony for the event in conjunction with the Tokyo Olympics and created participant medals for competitors. The Olympics at Paradise wrapped up with a closing ceremony where residents enjoyed an outdoor celebration complete with live music, dancing and food trucks.
