Do you love to share? Do you love a good dare? If so I have the perfect dare and share for you, and it may even win you some money! UnitedHealthcare is daring you and your family to share each month what you are doing to get and stay healthy. The “We Dare You” consumer campaign encourages people to be active and healthy as well as offers“dares” each month with the goal of helping people live a healthier and more active lifestyle – and maybe even win some cash!
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post brought to you by United Healthcare I have partnered with them to spread the word about how #WeDareYou. All opinions expressed are my own.
Our heart healthy habits this month
This year our family continues our efforts to be healthier.
- Mr. Money Saving Parent has invested in a pedometer and an app to help him with keeping track of his walks.
- We told you about our experience with the Jawbone.
- My daughters are drinking more water.
- I’m making infused water to keep on hand.
- And, we recently got the game Flip to 2 B fit board game, in order to make being healthy more fun.
Here’s a way we have found to make our efforts a whole lot more fun!
We Dare You!
The UnitedHealthcare “We Dare You” campaign is part of the company’s Source4Women digital and social health and wellness resource. The company uses each “dare” to provide you with links to various resources to help educate and inspire people to live healthy lifestyles. Each “dare” is interactive allowing users to upload photos and share them through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. The hope is that one photo will inspire others to get involved with the challenge and take the “dare” themselves.
“We are connecting and engaging with thousands of people every month and fostering an interactive, online relationship to help empower people to take charge of their health and enhance their quality of life,” said Yasmine Winkler, chief marketing, product & innovation officer at UnitedHealthcare.
Some of the “dares” that have been issued include daring people to get 30 minutes of exercise, daring people to add fruits and vegetables to their diet, and the most current dare “to do a heart healthy exercise.” Anyone who wants to participate in the “We Dare You” challenges must share a picture of themselves engaging in the monthly “dare.”
A bonus to taking UnitedHealthcare’s dare is that you could win a prize. Participants will be entered to win $25 Visa gift cards weekly and the chance to win the grand prize of a $400 Visa gift card.
This month there are two dares. One is so EASY and I bet you are doing it anyway on Facebook Instagram and Twitter! Share a photo of doing a heart healthy exercise. Yep. it’s that easy and you are entered to win one of the weekly prizes and the grand prize! (See official rules, terms and conditions).
The second dare is to “get up, get out and get active.” To engage in the second dare users log their exercise routines including number of times, time spent, and where the exercise took place for the chance to win a pre-paid gift card.
We dare you to share your heart healthy tips!
