Every member of the modern family has access to electronic devices and gadgets that could potentially lead to long hours of sitting, instead of being active. A lack of activity and movement has contributed to the nation’s collective weight problem and the many health challenges that come along with it. In an effort to help get families “movin” again, Amerigroup participated in a recent family focused free health event. As a sponsor for the fun Hip Hop for Health event, the company organized a kids zone which provided activities like face painting in addition to exercise disguised as fun and games.
The event included everything from free health screenings to a Hip Hop music concert was a healthy success. Encouraging both individuals and families to include more healthy choices in their everyday decisions is a way that Amerigroup continues to support the community as a whole. Hopefully with more events like this our TV remotes, game controls and tablets, will have time to collect a little dust while we move around.
