Congratulations!

Join Us in Congratulating the 60 Strong Contest Winners.

The winners, 60 Strong Ambassadors, will be featured on the 2021 Buffalo 60 Strong Calendar, which highlights Buffalo area landmarks and health tips for seniors. Proceeds from calendar sales will benefit Hospice and Palliative Care Buffalo to support their mission to provide care, support, advocacy and education to people in Erie County impacted by serious illness and loss. The 60 Strong Ambassadors have accomplished unimaginable feats, overcome chronic health conditions, changed lives for those less fortunate, and contributed to society in a meaningful way.
