Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan was one of the sponsors of the 2011 Motown Winter Blast. As our dietitian and health coach, Grace Derocha, pointed out during her snow-shoeing demonstration for WXYZ Channel 7, we proudly support events that celebrate healthy lifestyles and strengthen Michigan communities.

Teaming up with Detroit Medical Center and Livio Radio

Our team also partnered with the Detroit Medical Center to host a “Warm Up” at the Compuware building on Saturday afternoon. Children were invited to participate in a health quiz and take a break from the cold.

Throughout the day, BCBSM health coaches, Grace Derocha and Angela Jenkins mingled with attendees, talking up good health, answering questions about exercise and nutrition and quizzing people on the basics of good health.

Grace and Angie offered everyone a free pair of ear buds, courtesy of Livio Radio, an Internet radio company based in Ferndale, and gave them a chance to enter to win a Livio Radio featuring Pandora. The team at Livio selected Elizabeth Cantrall of Clinton Township as the lucky winner.

Checking out the New Digs

More than 800 Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan employees and family members visited their new offices at the Renaissance Center while at the event on Saturday. As part of our commitment to Michigan’s core cities, we’re moving 3,000 employees from Southfield downtown Detroit this Spring.

Having a Blast at the Winter Blast

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the event. We hope you continue to stay active through the end of winter and beyond. Were you able to check out the Motown Winter Blast this year? Let us know how you participate in the community and stay active during these cold Winter months.
