Community Events


Fearless is springing ahead!

Spring has sprung in the Capital Region! At BlueShield, we aim to bring exciting, healthy activities to our communities that will keep you moving and having fun all season long.

Lace up your sneakers and race to the finish in one of the Capital District YMCA’s 2019 community wellness events, or shop for fresh, local goods at the Schenectady Greenmarket. Stay tuned for Healthy Zone Cruiser appearances in your community throughout the spring, as well as updates on summer fun and fitness at the Empire State Plaza.
