Townville Resident Wins SC Fitness Photo Contest

BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina selected Janice Anderson, Townville, S.C., as the August winner of its Facebook-based healthy activity photo competition. The contest continues in September with “favorite summer memories” as the focus for photo entries.

Anderson was selected at random for a photo of her grandchildren shag dancing. The theme for the month was “Show us your best move” and the prize was an all-inclusive VIP package to the South Carolina Jazz Festival in Cheraw, S.C.

“We congratulate Janice for helping her family work toward a healthy lifestyle and sharing that in our LiveLifeBlueSM competition. All of the entries are an inspiration for everyone to get moving, eat right and enjoy an active life,” said Matt Shaffer, BlueCross’ senior vice president, Major Group division.

The contest continues with a different wellness activity featured each month. The competition is open to any health-minded individuals, aged 18 or older, who live in South Carolina.  Participants shoot a “selfie” or have a friend photograph them performing the wellness activity of the month and upload the photo to the BlueCross Facebook page at  Entrants do not have to be BlueCross members.

The prize for September entries is a behind-the-scenes “Painting with Elephants” experience courtesy of the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia, S.C.
