Independence celebrates 10th consecutive National Walk @ Lunch Day

On April 26, 1,500 Independence Blue Cross associates joined the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and walkers from across the country in a national effort to encourage people to get on their feet for National Walk @ Lunch Day. For the 10th consecutive year, thousands of our associates and members of the local workforce joined organizations throughout the United States for this annual event demonstrating how to fit regular exercise into busy schedules.

New for 2017, associates received walking directions for four different routes in the surrounding area — complete with designated “selfie spots.” Walkers located at our headquarters headed out from our courtyard at 1901 Market Street and trekked courses that took them to Rittenhouse Square, Schuylkill River Trail, Ben Franklin Parkway, or Broad Street.

All participants were encouraged to share their National Walk @ Lunch Day photos on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – keeping with our #FearlessFit theme to build a strong community.
