DeEtte Sauer is a shining example of the feats you can achieve at any age. DeEtte was far from healthy when she hit 50. She had just given up drinking and smoking but gained a significant amount of weight with her newfound sobriety. At 58, she decided to take the plunge toward a healthier lifestyle and joined a competitive swim team … even though she couldn’t swim.
At 81 years young, DeEtte will be competing in her 13th National Senior Games next month, the largest multi-sport event in the world for men and women over 50. The gold medalist is proudly representing Humana’s team of Game Changers, for the second time.
Humana Game Changers are the embodiment of healthy aging. They’re a small group of athletes from around the country chosen for national recognition from thousands of competitors at the National Senior Games to demonstrate how regular physical activity can positively impact overall well-being and to inspire others that a healthier lifestyle is possible, no matter your age or athletic ability.
