National Walk @ Lunch Day
More People Than Ever Turned a Working Lunch Into a Walking Lunch
A record 26,000 people from 105 employers joined us in Center City Philadelphia and throughout the region for our sixth annual National Walk @ Lunch Day event on April 24, 2013.
Participation in this year’s walk nearly doubled, with an increase of more than 12,000 walkers, including Independence Blue Cross (IBC) associates, employees of our customers, area school children, and community members.
Kudos to IBC’s worksite wellness partners for encouraging their employees to make time for exercise in their busy schedules. Their continued support helps us make this event a bigger success each year.
Another long-standing IBC community partner, the American Cancer Society, also participated at this year’s walk and enrolled 70 participants in their landmark national cancer prevention study, Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). IBC proudly serves as the CPS-3 Regional Champion.
