THE ROGER NELSON "INSPIRATION" AWARD
The Roger Nelson Inspiration Award began in 2017. The award follows the previously named Ginny Anderson Inspirational Award. Roger passed away in February, 2016. Prior to his death, Roger kept bouncing bag from many types of cancer, including some surgeries, and over a period of many years. During those years, Roger would re-cuperate to a point where could once again be able to compete in local and State Senior Games, and National competitions in the 75+ Basketball. Roger served on the Board of Directors of the SD Senior Games for over 20 Years. He truly was an inspiration to all!
