#TowerGimmeFive Continues Through October 31

There's still time to participate in a fun and simple challenge that can help you win prizes and give back to the community! #TowerGimmeFive, a wellness challenge from Tower Health, is designed to promote awareness of the benefits of healthy, plant-based eating. To take part, simply eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day for five days. Once you complete this challenge, post a photo or Boomerang video to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, include #TowerGimmeFive in the post, and challenge five friends to do the same.

Every post with #TowerGimmeFive means an additional $1 that Tower Health will donate to food banks in Berks, Chester, and Montgomery counties, up to $30,000. According to statistics from the Greater Berks Food Bank, each dollar they receive can purchase $20 worth-or 12 pounds-of food, and equals ten meals for people in need. Each donation through #TowerGimmeFive represents a meaningful act of assistance to local food banks and the community members who rely on them.

Participants are also entered to win grocery store gift cards: a total of 115 people who complete the challenge will be randomly selected to win gift cards from $100 up to $500. Each person is only eligible for one prize, but everyone is free to complete the challenge multiple times. Making a new social media post for each successful five days increases both the amount of money donated to food banks and your chances of winning a prize.

An additional giveaway will be happening the week of October 22! Keep an eye on Reading Hospital's social media (@readinghospital on Facebook and @readinghospital Instagram; @ReadingHosp on Twitter) for posts each day-ten people who comment using #TowerGimmeFive and tag five friends will be randomly selected to win a $100 grocery store gift card.

Don't delay, this challenge comes to a close on October 31, 2018! For more information, please visit towerhealth.org/towergimmefive.
