The Age March will be the first time in history when people of all ages, races, genders, sexualities and economic walks of life join together to celebrate aging as a positive experience. The Age March’s intention is to raise age awareness and begin to break down the myths, stereotypes and social pressures causing age discrimination, shame and negative attitudes towards aging in our culture.

At a time when we are living longer lives than ever before we need to be free to SHINE ON at 50, 60, 70, 80, and beyond and not be limited by ourselves or others as we continue to seek new experiences and opportunities to make our contributions.

Don’t be ashamed of your age—be proud and celebrate it. Many younger people have missed out on the opportunity to spend quality time with grandparents and other older adults in their lives. There is a special connection between the young and old which needs to be nurtured and supported.

So much can be gained from the wisdom to be shared between generations.
