Walgreens and National Urban League Free Assistance to Communities

 A well-deserved drive to Fort Lauderdale was in perfect order as part of our partnership to experience  Walgreens and the National Urban League community outreach program dedicated to providing free preventative and early detection health services to urban and at-risk communities across the country. Now through November, Walgreens will use the tour to help provide free health tests, assessments, education and consulting services to Americans in select markets nationwide. Ted, Ashley and Gonzalo At The Walgreens Wellness Tour I  was greeted by the friendly team Ted, Ashley and Gonzalo, who explained the simple process of signing up for Free Health Tests. And we proceeded into the Wellness Tour bus for the following tests: •Total Cholesterol Levels •Glucose Levels •Blood Pressure •Comprehensive Weight Assessment Test: •Body Weight – Body Mass Index •Body Fat Percentage – Skeletal Muscle Percentage •Body Age – Resting Metabolism – Visceral Fat I wish more people would find out that the program does not take a lot of time from their daily routine and the time spent will be worth receiving valuable and useful information. Now I know for a fact that I have to take care of my Cholesterol and that my body age came at 37 years old which made me happy LoL!!! Our health is the single most important priority we should have in life because without it we are useless. Thank you Walgreens and National Urban League for joining forces and visiting Fort Lauderdale August 4 through 7. Hopefully communities in Dania and Plantation can take advantage. Thursday, August 6 from 10 am to 3pm: Walgreens | 202 S. Federal Hwy, Dania, FL 33004 Friday, August 7 from 10am to 3pm: Walgreens | 3895 W. Broward Blvd, Plantation, FL 33312 To learn when the Walgreens Wellness Tour with the National Urban League is serving a neighborhood near you, visit Walgreens.com/Tour.

Race Around America Lands in Miami

Race Around America Lands in Miami

 Did you hear about Race Around America?  Well, Miami Pink Girls had the opportunity to be part of the promotional Miami on-site Race Around America ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang presented by Walgreens.  What a fun initiative to introduce the NEW balance Financial Prepaid MasterCard from Walgreens.  A totally interactive and engaging program where the audience voted online, watched webisodes to see the decisions in action as four of NASCAR’s best drivers took the Mustang around the country. Participants had a chance to win a trip to Miami and the possibility of one cool hot rod with driver Chris Buescher. Chris is currently a developmental driver for Roush Fenway Racing, and drives the No. 60 Roush Performance Parts Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. We started the day off with some meet and greets at the Walgreens on Collins in Miami Beach. Among the surprises for Fans as they waited in line to get a signed invitation, they were treated to a free dinner at the Eleventh Street Diner. The Rookie of the Year Contender was thrilled to have the chance to interact with his supporters who wished him good luck on this weekend’s final competition of ‘Race Around America’. Walgreens and Roush Fenway Racing partnered to present the Roush Stage 3 Mustang, a testament of what is an icon of speed and engineering. It purrs like a Lion and drives like a dream. Not only is Saturday the last race for ‘Race Around America’ but the winner of the Roush Stage 3 Mustang/Trip to Miami will also be announced. Walgreens picked the top four individuals who had earned the most Balance Reward points through their Balance Financial Prepaid MasterCard. During the meet and greet 3 fans were selected to take an exclusive ride in the Roush Stage 3 Mustang with Chris. The Miami traffic didn’t stop them from bringing the rooftop down and enjoying the cool breeze.  After a cruise around town, it was time to chow down. As promised Chris was able to use his Balance Financial Prepaid MasterCard from Walgreens to treat his fans to a delicious meal. Subs, sandwiches and salads all tasted as good as it smelled. In return Chris earned Balance reward points that will be beneficial to him for any quick stops along the road. At the young age of 22, Beuscher has won over 100 races and took home 1st place at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital 200 in Ohio. At 12 years old, Chris was already firing up engines and knew that this was more than a hobby. When asked if he would like to be the next Jeff Gordon Chris said “that’s...

Who wants to look and feel as good as possible?

Who wants to look and feel as good as possible?

 Most people do right? Or do we think it’s just going to magically happen? That one day we wake up and look healthy and feel great without trying? Really? Glad that I partnered with Walgreens to share my story to wellness helped by the “Way To Well Tour with AARP” Walgreens in Doral, Florida. During the event I met the lovely Luisa Fernanda the beautiful radio Mix 98.3 personality who hosted the event, and she is also on the morning show with our dear friend Enrique Santos. We all know it’s about what we eat and exercise, there is no other way around it.  I think the hardest part is getting started with a workout program. I’m here today to let you in on what has motivated me to start working out again. I was thrilled that Walgreens sent me a Fitbit, a slim wireless wrist band that accurately tracks steps taken, calories burned and distance traveled  throughout the day and monitors the quality of your sleep at night. Fitbit has become very popular and as a matter of fact my sister interviewed a Latino celebrity the other day and he had one on. She even tagged me in the pic she took with him lol! LED lights on the device show you how your day is measuring up against your personal goals, it can be synct to your computer or smart phone  to get a full picture with graphs and charts for daily, weekly or monthly stats.  I have been staying on my goal of walking 5 miles per day, eating healthier and sleeping better. I met the friendly Walgreens Professionals at Way To Well Bus: Good  news for your pocket too, because “Steps with Walgreens Rewards” members get rewarded for taking steps toward a healthier life,  we get  20 points for every mile we walk or run and 20 points per weigh-in, how cool is that ?  We earn points when we engage in healthy behavior, then redeem for a $5.00 reward with every 5,000 points. You have to love that. GIVEAWAY: If you sign-up with Walgreens Rewards and send me a comment here on the blog confirming, I am randomly giving away ONE FitBit to a lucky friend by July 18. Daleeee GO sign-up and take your first step today like I did wepa! I took pic of my FitBit with first post I wrote in the background about going to the event:  ...

Johnson & Johnson Summertime Healthy Essentials

 I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser. My experience at the “2014 FIFA World Cup Wellness Tour” with Johnson & Johnson at Walgreens was fun and a healthy one too! It was a great idea for Walgreens to join forces with Johnson & Johnson during the summertime to share healthy essentials within the community.  Loved the fact that Walgreens Way to Well bus travels the country and has professionals administer health tests like Total Cholesterol Tests, Blood Pressure Tests and Body Age Tests! I particularly was so happy to find out my body age came out to 29 LOL! The tests were truly appreciated, as I was a little worried about my Cholesterol, but it is good. The event took place in Walgreens in the Doral area sponsored by Johnson & Johnson who gave out goodie bags with product samples, plus fun activities included meet and great with soccer star, German Villa. He was charming and sweet to all the kids that ran up to meet him. There were also the Club of Futboleros USA that are part of the traveling tour showing off their awesome soccer skills! They played and did cool tricks in the hot sun all day. The kids really loved watching them and attempting the Futbolero tricks while SAFE Kids organization was educating families on avoiding accidental childhood injuries, something very important to be wary of in the summer time! The whole event was hosted by Luisa Fernandez from Radio MIX98.3. Luisa is part of one of top MIX 98.3 morning Miami Radio shows with Enrique Santos, that is really funny and entertaining! The whole day was not only fun but very informative! Thank you Johnson & Johnson and Walgreens for a great job keeping customers happy and healthy! Hashtags we are using to promote this campaign are #CelebrateEveryGoal #CollectiveBias    ...
