Walking 1,000 strong to Help Battle Heart Disease and Stroke

Every year we partner with the American Heart Association for the annual Chicago Heart Walk to raise funds for the battle against heart disease. In 2014, BCBSIL employees created the largest team to date for our organization; more than 1,000 volunteers gathered that brisk September morning and started their 5k walk!  Before our team in blue started the Heart Walk 5k, a bunch of our friends gathered by our Chicago headquarters. Why? They were attempting to break the Guinness World Record of the most people gathered in the shape of a heart making a heart symbol with their hands! Unfortunately, we fell just a few people short of the previous world record… maybe next time!
