Even in the cold winter weather, Western Pennsylvania is a great place to get out and be active. (And after you indulged in all the deliciousness of yesterday’s food, I am sure you probably are like me and wanting to get out move a little bit, right?) UnitedHealthcare is bringing their campaign, Western PA Pride, to our area just in time to motivate you to get out and do something active in your community.

You know, something like running yesterday’s Turkey Trot in Downtown Pittsburgh (which I didn’t get to do this year due to being on hold with my running game, so let’s celebrate with last year’s photo). Earning your pie Being thankful that you are taking care of yourself is a great reason to run a race like this!

UnitedHealthcare’s Western PA Pride campaign is looking for Western PA residents who are being active or healthy in their communities that they love, and they are looking for you. To participate, they are asking you to submit an “activity-inspired photo” of you participating in healthy activities – and there are prizes involved, too (more on that below!).

I love this campaign and spent some time yesterday checking out all the awesome entries they already have – a huge shout-out to all of you who love our area and their bodies and lives! Think it’s time for me to get an updated photo of being active and submit it (maybe something like my Ambulance 5k first place walk?)!

Beyond looking for participants in the campaign, UnitedHealthcare is sponsoring several local events to inspire you to get out and doing something good for you and your community. A few options for you are:

  • Bundle Up Telethon for WTAE-TV – December 5
  • Holiday Party at Uniontown Fire Department Social Hall – December 6

You can check out the campaign page ( to find more events near you AND submit your active photo! Prizes that you can win for submitting your photo include:

  • $25 Visa gift card (11 weekly winners)
  • $100 Visa gift card (for photos revolving around events)
  • $400 Visa gift card (1 grand prize winner)

Remember, your photo should be of you (or your family) being active or healthy in your community or of you participating in one of the upcoming events. (Have a picture from yesterday’s Turkey Trot? That counts!)

Take advantage of this slight warm spell and get active this weekend!
