Events and Sponsorships
Independence proudly sponsors several annual events that raise awareness for health issues impacting our community, support charitable organizations, and encourage individuals and families to live a more active lifestyle.
Indego — Philly’s Bike Share
We’re proud to sponsor Indego, Philly’s bike share system, and help provide a new, affordable, and healthy form of public transportation to residents, commuters, and visitors. It’s a natural extension of our mission to enhance the health and wellness of the people and communities we serve.
We’re helping make it even more convenient for people to ride Indego:
- Independence Dollar Days: On the first Tuesday of every month, walk-up Indego trips are just $1 for the first 30 minutes. Trips must be purchased with a credit or debit card at any Indego station kiosk.
- Indego30 Membership Discount: Independence members and associates can save $10 on their first month when they sign up for an Indego30 membership. Log in at ibxpress.com to get the promo code. Offer valid through September 30, 2015.
Visit rideindego.com for Indego membership information, an interactive station map, safe riding tips, and more.
Every April, thousands of people hit the streets of Philadelphia and surrounding communities to turn a working lunch into a walking lunch. Independence hosts the country’s largest National Walk @ Lunch Day event, an initiative spearheaded nationally by the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.
