Whether you’re swimming in Emerald Lake, paddling along the Winooski, tubing in the White River, or taking the plunge at the Bolton Potholes, when it comes to water, it’s important to know how to stay safe while you’re having fun.
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, we are 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.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont condemns racism and systemic oppression and stands in solidarity with other local, Vermont institutions to proactively disrupt the status quo. Furthermore, we believe the recent killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor are a result of longstanding aggression and racial profiling dating back generations.
