We are dedicated to total health of body, mind, and spirit, and we pursue efforts that broaden access to the highest quality care for people when they need it. We believe all of us deserve to live healthy lives in our homes, our workplaces, and our neighborhoods. That’s why, for more than 70 years, we have worked to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.

We accomplish this work in countless ways, from funding knowledge and resource sharing programs that address health disparities to providing assistance with health care costs to people in need. Our commitment is exhibited in the many ways we reach out and work with others to build a healthy future for all.

Share Your Story

Our Community. Our Stories. Share Yours.

There are moments that inspire. Moments that touch your heart, open your eyes or inspire action. Often a single moment can achieve all three.

Moments like these happen all the time throughout our programs and countless others like them. If you come across one of these moments, please share it here. It may just be the spark that inspires one more person to get involved.

The “Fire Up Your Feet” Challenge Keeps Kids Active

No need to shell out big bucks for expensive fitness trackers. School kids can register for the "Fire Up Your Feet" Spring challenge, and use the FREE online fitness tracking system. They might even walk their way to prizes of up to $5,000. The activity challenge runs from April 13 through May 15 . . . but the benefits of instilling kids with a love of physical activity can last a lifetime.

Registration is open now for all K-8 students — from public, private, parochial, and charter schools. This FREE program is a great way to incorporate fun and exercise into the day — and maybe a little competition (or not — it's plenty flexible).
Register your child today (and don't forget your grandchildren, neighbors, nieces, and nephews, too!). Then start stepping up to $5,000 for school wellness programs.

All Activity Counts

Fire Up Your Feet is more than a walking program. Wheels work too. In fact, all activity — even recess — counts toward the goals and prizes. Fire Up Your Feet encourages kids, families, teachers, and school staff to get up and go, in any way that moves them (and you).

Counting Counts, Too

The easy, online tracking system lets participants track their every move — making it interactive, fun, and goal-oriented. Workouts work best when you're counting your way toward a tangible goal — and kids can watch their progress through the counter. The Fire Up Your Feet website also offers tons of great resources to get kids and communities moving.
