One of the most effective long-term ways to manage the rising cost of health care is to encourage your employees to get regular exercise. That is why BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina has created the WalkingWorks® Challenge to help you encourage your employees to increase their physical activity and improve their health through walking.

Note: Individuals with disabilities may participate by logging miles traveled in a wheelchair, laps they swim in a pool or time spent performing a comparable physical activity.
