50 Over 50

Posted on 05/31/22

IT’S TIME TO DISRUPT AGING™

Twenty under twenty. Thirty under thirty. Forty under forty. There’s no shortage of lists for people under a certain age who are making significant contributions in their communities. It’s time to recognize that possibilities shouldn’t be limited by age. It's time to change the stories we tell ourselves about aging. It’s time for a new list.

The 50 Over 50 list recognizes and celebrates the courageous, compassionate, and selfless acts of service by Minnesotans over the age of 50 who are giving their all as they care for others, reimagine their careers and businesses, and give hope to our communities. They don’t adhere to the belief that our capacity to blaze a trail or shake things up diminishes as we age. They’re living life on their own terms and improving the lives of others all at the same time. 

Since 2016, we’ve honored over 250 individuals from across the state of Minnesota who keep our communities connected, whole, and nourished; strengthen and grow our nonprofit sector; create a thriving culture; steward our economic resources and talent; and infuse the energy of innovation into industries, products, systems, and policies that improve our lives.
