Heartland Games for Active Adults

The 2017 Heartland Games for Active Adults will take place in February and March in Highlands County. Events are open to men and women 50 years and older competing against others of the same gender and age group. The Heartland Games for Active Adults are sanctioned by the Florida Sports Foundation and serve as a qualifying event for the Florida State Games for residents of Desoto, Hardee, Highlands and surrounding counties.
