Nominate an Inspirational Person Between Ages 60 and 69 by August 31 to be Featured on the Buffalo 60 Strong Calendar!

You, or someone you know, could be featured in the 2021 Buffalo 60 Strong calendar, an exclusive calendar showcasing inspirational “60 somethings” and highlighting Buffalo events and activities. In addition to appearing in the calendar, winners receive “celebrity treatment” – a virtual kick-off party, a professional photo shoot, and compensation for their modeling time.

Nominate a friend or family member — age 60 to 69 — or yourself — someone you think has achieved remarkable levels of fitness, pursued a new hobby, or helped their community. The candidate you admire might be “giving back” to a charity, fighting a chronic condition or caring for someone who is.

Here’s how it works:

  • Log on to to submit an application form, 200-400 word essay, headshot and full-length photo by Monday, August 31. Instead of the essay, you can upload a smartphone video describing the candidate.
  • Or download an application at and mail the completed form, a 200-400 word essay, head-shot, and full-length photo to Buffalo 60 Strong Contest, c/o Buffalo Medical Group Administration, 325 Essjay Road, Williamsville, NY 14221. The entry must be postmarked by Thursday, August 27, 2020.
  • Those who nominate winning candidates receive a $50 gift certificate.

Buffalo 60 Strong candidates must be between ages 60 and 69 on September 1, 2020, and a resident of Alleghany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagra, Orleans, or Wyoming county.

Celebrity judges will select 12 winners who exemplify how life after 60 can be a vibrant and active time. Contestants are judged on health/fitness/wellness, community involvement, volunteerism, and how they are inspirational.

Winners must be available Thursday, October 1, through Saturday, October 3.
