Hundreds of Independence Blue Cross associates joined members of the local workforce to celebrate the 12th consecutive National Walk @ Lunch Day on April 24.  Sponsored by Independence and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, the annual National Walk @ Lunch Day demonstrates the importance and ease of fitting regular exercise into a busy schedule simply by taking a walk at lunch.

Walkers gathered in the courtyard at Independence headquarters on Market Street for a quick warm-up and some healthy snacks before heading out on a pre-planned, one-mile course through the city.

Participants were encouraged to share their National Walk @ Lunch Day photos on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, keeping with Independence’s #FearlessFit theme of promoting healthy, active lifestyles.
