Tower Health is unveiling a fun AND charitable way to encourage individuals to eat more fruits and vegetables. #TowerGimmeFive is a social media-based campaign designed to promote awareness for the benefits of healthy eating, as well as raise money for our food banks in Berks, Montgomery, and Chester counties.
How will it do this? Individuals commit to eating five servings of fruits and vegetables each day for five days. Next, post a boomerang video to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, include #TowerGimmeFive in your post, and challenge five of your friends to do the same! For every video posted with #TowerGimmeFive, Tower Health will donate a dollar to a local food bank, up to $30,000!
Prizes will also be awarded to randomly selected participants in the form of grocery store gift cards. Five $500 gift cards, 10 $250 gift cards, and 50 $100 gift cards will be distributed to winners, who can choose among GIANT Food Stores, Redner's Market, Weis Markets, Aldi, Wegman's, or Trader Joe's for their prize. 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 an individual's chances of winning a prize.
The #TowerGimmeFive healthy challenge begins Wednesday, August 1, and will end Wednesday, October 31.
Don’t miss the chance to rise to the challenge and be a part of this healthy movement for our community!
