Twelve Syracuse residents in their 60s have been chosen to be featured as “pin ups” on an exclusive 2022 calendar that highlights events and activities around Syracuse and serves as a roadmap to good health.
A panel of celebrity judges from Syracuse selected the 60 Strong Ambassadors because they have competed in world championships for their sport, overcome major health issues, served as leaders in their community or dedicated their lives to helping others. Each one has a unique story to tell. They all exemplify how life after 60 can be a positive, vibrant and active time. In addition to being photographed to appear in the 2022 Syracuse 60 Strong calendar, winners received “celebrity treatment,” and were paid for their time to participate in a professional photo shoot.
The winners are as follows: Deborah Reinhardt-Youmans, Donna Dunn, George Kilpatrick, Jim King, Joseph Cambareri, Liz Malcolm Scheibel, Mary Jensen, Mary Lou Balcolm, Pat Floyd-Echols, Vicki Brackens, Elliott Bruton and Kevin Maier.
The winners were nominated by family members and friends. They will each appear in front of a Syracuse landmark and the calendar will also feature health tips for seniors and provide information about Medicare information sessions and open enrollment.
The Syracuse 60 Strong calendars are available for purchase online at www.Syracuse60Strong.com. The cost is $15 for each calendar and all proceeds will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, CNY Chapter.
Syracuse 60 Strong is a celebration of grit and resilience, sponsored by FamilyCare Medical Group in conjunction with the launch of Salt City Senior Care Advantage IPA, a new program designed to keep seniors active and help them navigate the complexities of Medicare coverage and other healthcare decisions.
