PITTSBURGH, Pa., May 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- You, or someone you know, could be featured as a "pin up" in the 2020 Pittsburgh 60 Strong calendar, an exclusive calendar featuring inspirational 60 somethings and highlighting area events and activities. A panel of celebrity judges will select 12 winners who exemplify how life after sixty can be a vibrant and active time. In addition to appearing in the calendar, winners receive "celebrity treatment" during a professional photo shoot and compensation for their time.
The public service program is sponsored by Preferred Primary Care Physicians (PPCP). Anyone age 18 or older can nominate a friend or relative between ages 60 and 69 who has achieved remarkable levels of fitness, pursued a new hobby or devoted time to helping those in need. The candidate might be raising money for a charity, or fighting a chronic health condition.
Here's how it works:
- Log on to www.Pittsburgh60strong.com, submit an application form, 200-400 word essay about your candidate, head shot and full-length photo by Wednesday, July 31, 2019.
- Or download an application form at www.Pittsburgh60strong.com and mail the completed form, along with a 200-400 word essay, head-shot and full-length photo to: Pittsburgh 60 Strong Contest, c/o PPCP, Manor Oak 2 Building, Suite 490, 1910 Cochran Rd., Pittsburgh, PA 15220.
