Member of the Year Calendar

2023 Timeline


May 15 – 26

From May 15 through 26, 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 2022 winners were Mary and Larry St. Germain. After Mary’s knee replacement, her doctor attributed her ability to bounce back quickly to her activity with SilverSneakers and encouraged her to get back to it. Larry is affectionately called “Batman” throughout the community as he dresses up as the superhero to entertain schools and church fairs, even working with Make-A-Wish Foundation. This superhero couple embodies wellness through movement and community involvement, and is an inspiration to all who meet them.
