GNOSO is an organization devoted to "over-fifty" individuals; enjoy a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE and have FUN! You don't have to be a Super-Jock to participate in GNOSO Events. Oh, the Games have super-athletic events, but GNOSO serves ALL SENIORS - NOT JUST ATHLETES. We have an event to fit your life-style. Regardless of whether you are a Vince Breaux, who can Bench Press 450 pounds (as a 69-year-old) or are a 90+ year-old participant who does Washer Pitch plays Bridge, does Team Dancing or does Track & Field, we have something for you. GNOSO's goal is to get Seniors off the couch, out of the doctors offices, and into a Healthy Lifestyle, whether for the exercise, or for the social values of being around other Seniors. We are an all-volunteer staff (except the Program Director), dedicated to presenting the best that Louisiana has to offer in Senior Olympics.

Remember, Life Begins at 50!

MISSION: GNOSO's Mission is to provide seniors over the age of 50, quality venues to participate in a variety of athletic, recreational and social activities, all of which promote wellness and an active lifestyle.
