Badge Up This Summer Contest Details


From July 6 through August 23, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) will challenge Rhode Island families to eat right, stay active and maintain healthy habits all summer long via its Facebook page Badge Up This Summer. During that time, fans will be provided with information, resources and practical tips to help them educate their kids (and themselves) about good health and will be given the opportunity to earn related ‘badges’ from the page’s mascot Buddy the Badger, being entered into a gift card raffle if they do so.

When a child participates in one of the activities (e.g. jumps rope or plays soccer to earn the Fit Badge), his or her parent or guardian can simply comment on any Facebook post or write on our wall to tell us what they did to earn the badge. That will enter them into our raffle for a chance to win one of eight $25 Visa giftcards. Each time they engage with the page, sharing what they did to earn their badge, it will count as one entry, and they can enter as many times they like. Winners will be announced the week of August 24. Additionally, throughout the campaign, Buddy will be hosting various Amazon Giveaways for items like boogie boards and basketballs!
