  • The AARP Fit & Fun Challenge is back this year, with AARP Wellness Ambassador Denise Austin encouraging participants to commit to walking at least 30 minutes a day for eight weeks. Participants will have a chance to win the grand prize, a spa weekend getaway for two. The challenge starts June 1st and runs through June 30th. Learn more and participate HERE.
  • AARP is changing the way we think about aging through our #DisruptAging Campaign – because aging doesn’t mean you’re “old” – aging means you’re living! Learn more and share your story HERE.
