Big News: Florida Hospital Partners With Growing Bolder

What do you want to do when you're 100? These days, it's not just a hypothetical question or pie-in-the-sky hope. It's reality! There are more centenarians alive today than in any time in history. That's one of the reasons we're thrilled to announce a new partnership between Florida Hospital and Growing Bolder.

Florida Hospital's Healthy 100 program spreads the message that lifestyle changes can have profoundly positive results on your quality of life. Growing Bolder's mission is to prove that it's not about age; it's about attitude. CEO Marc Middleton says, "The Healthy 100 program is dedicated to charting a path to a healthy 100 years of age and then providing the tools to get you there. We provide the stories to inspire you with the proof that it's possible to live an active, independent, meaningful life into your 100s."

You can learn much more about this new partnership at GrowingBolderTV.com and more about Healthy 100 at healthy100.org.

Growing Bolder Executive Producer Katy Widrick starts it off with a new blog post about her favorite summer job.

Awesome Artists

Some of the best artists in history weren't appreciated in their lifetimes. But thanks to the power of social media, two of our favorite Growing Bolder talents -- Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson ("Living a Life of Exquisite Harmony") and Harold Garde ("Ageless Art") -- are getting their due in due time! Elizabeth has been exhibited at shows across the country, and Harold is doing classes and film screenings. Congratulations!

Deep Thoughts

"Don't you know that I danced, I danced till a quarter to three, with the help, last night, of Daddy G. He was swingin' on the sax like-a nobody could, and I was dancin' all over the room." -- Gary U.S. Bonds, who turns 72 this week!

Remembering the Brave Forces

This week marks the anniversary of 1944's "D-Day," the pivotal World War II invasion in which Allied troops landed in Normandy. The brave troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of French coastline, supported by more than 5,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft, to fight Nazi Germany. By the day's end, the Allies had taken a stand but more than 9,000 soldiers were killed or wounded.

Listen to the men who stormed the beaches and suffered through the atrocities of war. Many of them are sharing their stories for the very first time. It's a powerful reminder about the cost of freedom and the bravery of the Greatest Generation.
