BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Some of our community's most inspiring will be cover-and-pinup-models in a forthcoming calendar to be released later this month.

The Buffalo 60 Strong program is sponsored by Buffalo Medical Group as it works to launch Senior Care Advantage One — a new initiative aimed at preventative care, care coordination resources, and a holistic approach to health and lifestyle.

Ambassadors were selected because of their inspirational stories and obstacles they’ve overcome to continue living a healthy and active lifestyle in their senior years.

Buffalo’s 60 Strong ambassadors are:

+ Lynette Barney

+ Mary Bonner

+ Gerald Buchholtz

+ Karen Calandra

+ George Cretekos

+ Linda Gellman

+ Jill Gonzalez

+ Dean Hyder

+ Ronald Killinger

+ Shaila Kokil

+ Kim McWilson

+ James “Ozzie” Osiadlo

The calendar will be available later this month. It cost $15 and all proceeds will go to Hospice & Palliative Care Buffalo.
