The American Heart Association is working to celebrate individuals who have made a positive impact on their health with the Lifestyle Change Award.
The Lifestyle Change Award, sponsored by Olivari Olive Oil, honors someone who has made significant, positive changes in an effort to live a longer and healthier life.
Nominations can be submitted by friends, co-workers or relatives. Individuals can also choose to nominate themselves. Nominations are due by Friday, Feb. 1.
Photos and stories from finalists will be posted on the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Facebook page, www.facebook.com/heartcny. The winner will be chosen by a combination of a panel of judges and public votes on Facebook.
The winner will then be recognized at the America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk closing ceremony on March 2 in the Utica College gymnasium.
Nomination forms can be submitted online at centralny.heart.org, or a hard copy can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 315-580-3960. Completed copies can be emailed to email@example.com or printed versions may be mailed to:
