Have you seen the Xprize about human longevity?

Well I don't know if this qualifies as a "retirement trend" but I didn't know where else to put it so here goes...

I LOVE x-prize, they are doing so many cool things that matter. Helping the environment, science and education, and now they are planning a series of prizes related to aging and longevity.

As retirees, it's something near and dear to our hearts. If you're not familiar with it, check it out:

Future of Longevity

In order to get the discussions going, they're offering a $5K "bucket challenge" that anyone can compete for, by submitting a 5-minute video answering the question, "How would your bucket list change, if you knew you'd be in perfect health at 120 years old?"

The link is near the bottom of the above page, or here:

Get Involved.

What do you think? It's interesting food for thought...


Wendy: It's easy to do a video nowadays, using a smart phone, or have family/friend video you!
