Berlin, Vt., July 10, 2020—For 11 years, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont’s (Blue Cross) Hike, Bike and Paddle events have motivated people of all ages to get outside to exercise, try a new activity, or to simply enjoy the beauty of our state. This year, instead of having a series of events, Blue Cross is inviting Vermonters to Hike, Bike and Paddle – and post. Their event encourages socializing at a distance to help keep Vermonters healthy and provides a chance to win a new kayak with paddle and personal flotation device included.
Starting on Monday, July 13, and running through Monday, August 3, Blue Cross encourages you to share photos of you and your friends and family getting outside and getting fit by hiking, biking, paddling, swimming – whatever outdoor activity you choose. When you post on your own page, be sure to @BCBSVT. You can post as many photos as you like – the more you add, the better your chances of getting picked. To learn more about how to get involved and have a chance to win, please visit www.bcbsvt.com/hikebikepaddle On August 3, two submissions will be chosen at random.
During this time when physical distancing is the norm people can feel more isolated, which can be detrimental to mental health and wellness. Invite a friend to rent a pair of kayaks and get out on the water together, or take a hike through one of the beautiful Vermont State Parks. Regardless of how you spend your time, get outdoors, get moving and as always, have fun!
