June 13 – 27
From June 13 through 27, nominate a SilverSneakers member for this prestigious award.
Yes, you can even nominate yourself.
A nominee is someone with an inspiring story about the impact SilverSneakers has had on his or her life, and who encourages and motivates others to live a healthy, active lifestyle. For example, the 2021 winner, Margaret Masters, is referred to as “Dancing Queen” at her location. When the pandemic hit and her location was shut down, she wasn’t about to slow down. As soon as SilverSneakers classes became available online, the technologically savvy Margaret was in! She’s active in her community, still drives, helps “younger” friends with technology and is interested in everything. At 99 years old, her delightful spirit encourages everyone to be positive.
