Wednesday will be Blue Cross Day at the U.P. State Fair next week in Escanaba.
The goal is to improve health and wellness across the Upper Peninsula. There are plenty of activities that will be going on highlighting the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. One of the partners joining Blue Cross on this day will be the U.P. Children's Museum.
"We're playing with fruit and veggies, but it's all about healthy eating, healthy activities," says Children's Museum manager Jim Edwards.
"Also with us will be the Marquette County Co-Op," says Stacie Hillier of Blue Cross Blue Shield. "They will be demonstrating healthy cooking techniques."
Free health screenings will be provided, plus Miss U.P. will be there sharing her health and wellness tips.
Blue Cross Day will last the entire day at the fair. In addition to the fair, Blue Cross works to support other great events across the U.P. that promote healthy living.
