50 Over 50: Stories on Aging Well

Posted on 11/12/21

Every year, AARP Minnesota and Pollen’s 50 Over 50 awards allow us to recognize the contributions of Minnesotans over the age of 50. The 250+ honorees we've celebrated to date are shattering stereotypes around aging, but that's only the start of their contributions. Across a variety of sectors and issues, from urban to rural, and from the personal to the systemic, all of these honorees make a positive impact in the lives of those around them. This story series is an opportunity to take a closer look at that impact. In it, we'll explore the contributions and journeys of several honorees, as they navigate the joys of aging, and continue to find ways to make a difference.
