Each year the contest has grown and I am always blown away whenever I have the opportunity to meet the amazing nominees.
Yes, they all look great, and yes, they are serious about staying active and committing to a healthy lifestyle, but what I love most is that they “do good” for others. And that is more often than not, the reason they become a part of our Over 40 & Fabulous! family.
If you are passionate about a charity or cause, participating in the contest is a great way to raise awareness, money and meet like-minded Atlantans who want to support your crusade.
“Best Self’s coverage was such an incredible form of support for Children Helping Children. Not only did it increase donations, volunteerism, and awareness in Atlanta, but the exposure also led to national coverage in other magazines and attention that lead to CHC receiving George Bush’s Points of Light Award. But the best part is when businesses provide this type of generous support, it frees up our time, money and resources for our programming which directly benefits the children we serve! WE LOVE BEST SELF! ”
And yes, we have become a bit of a family. The nominees and winners from previous years often join the annual festivities because of the fun and camaraderie. It’s just a great group of people who aspire to be their best selves and inspire us all.
So, don’t be shy … it’s for a good cause. Nominate yourself, or someone you know, through February 20 at bestselfatlanta.com. And remember to follow us on Facebook to vote and join the events we have scheduled for 2017.
