Inspiration starts here. More than 2.2 million strong, Michigan seniors built the communities we call home, raised a generation and each day they continue to grow, learn and serve. Volunteers, mentors, leaders, elders, teachers, artists, students, athletes, advocates—Now is the time to tell their stories.
Seniors have built businesses, tackled social problems, fought wars, raised families and served our communities. It’s time Michiganders heard about the seniors who continue to do great work across our state with no intentions of slowing down. Through the Senior Strong campaign we celebrate seniors across Michigan who continue to serve their communities with the goal of raising awareness of this powerful generation. The IAmSeniorStrong Award will highlight and honor these seniors in an effort to share their stories.
