Team MedBen Promotes Better Health at HeartChase Event

MedBen and other area businesses braved cool temperatures and looming rain clouds to promote heart health and have a few hours of fun at the inaugural Licking County HeartChase on Saturday, April 30 in Newark, Ohio. In addition to participating in the morning's activities, MedBen served as a local sponsor for the event, which was created by the American Heart Association (AHA).

MedBen was well-represented at HeartChase, as 12 departmental teams comprising 38 employees and their families gathered together for some healthy competition while raising funds to aid the fight against heart disease. Company Chairman & CEO Doug Freeman, also in attendance, served on the event's executive leadership team.

Teams participated in a variety of heart-related stunts, such as navigating a bounce house obstacle course, guessing fast food calorie counts and performing CPR in time to the Bee Gees' classic "Stayin' Alive." Participants also found "Power Ups" throughout the event area and entered them into the HeartChase smartphone app, which tracked the team's points.

So, did MedBen take first place? Well, no... but the event raised over $90,000 to chase away heart disease, so we'll call that a "win."
