Recipients Named at Inspire Positive Aging Awards Luncheon on June 26, 2019
What does a protestor at Standing Rock, a fitness guru in his 90s, a Washington’s first Nursing Home Ombudsman, and a master Wii bowler all have in common?
Answer: they are all former recipients of Sound Generations’ Inspire Positive Aging Awards (IPAA)!
Now in its 14th year, IPAA celebrates older adults in King County who inspire those around them to age well and live their best lives. The 2019 IPAA nominations are now open, and people of all ages are invited to submit an application for an older adult
(60 years or older) who inspires them.
The nomination form is available at inspire-award.org. Forms must be received or postmarked by April 30, 2019.
All nominees will be celebrated at the Inspire Positive Aging Awards Luncheon, to be held on June 26, 2019 at The Bellevue Hilton. This unique, festive tradition brings together hundreds of people from diverse communities throughout King County.
