Independence celebrates 11th consecutive National Walk @ Lunch Day

National Walk at Lunch Day

Independence associates warm-up before heading out to participate in National Walk @ Lunch Day.

For the 11th consecutive year, Independence Blue Cross associates and members of the local workforce joined the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association and organizations throughout the United States for the annual National Walk @ Lunch Day on April 25, demonstrating how to fit regular exercise into busy schedules by taking a walk at lunch.

Rain and grey skies didn’t dampen the energy at Independence headquarters on Market Street as associates gathered in the lobby 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.
