Ron Boesch, D.C., faculty clinician on the Davenport Campus, represented Palmer during the 3rd Annual QC Senior Olympics Celebrity Challenge. The Challenge kicks off the annual Quad Cities Senior Olympics (QCSO), which is in its 22nd year. The QCSO's purpose is to "improve health, fitness and quality of life" and "encourage and promote the active lifestyle for individuals over the age of 50." Lisa Killinger, D.C. (Diagnosis & Radiology), is on the QCSO board of directors and invited Dr. Boesch to participate.

After doing his best to "claim victory for us" over WQAD Channel 8, WHBF Channel 4, radio station WLLR, Moline Fitness and the Cornbelt Runners, Dr. Boesch now claims the champion title for the Challenge.

"From my artwork to Frisbee golf, I was victorious. For the bean bag toss, I came in second, and I was humbled by the trivia portion. But it was a great time, and everyone had fun for a great cause."

Let it also be known that he performed all the activities in a sport coat and tie, while everyone else wore shorts and T-shirts. "You've got to do it in style," he laughed.
