Meetup.com is a social network promoting just about everything you can imagine. Individuals form meetup groups focusing on an interest and people join to chat, share information and resources, and plan to get together for events. Many of the groups plan events related to cycling, hiking, running and other physical activities. Blue Cross Blue Shield is hoping to encourage health and wellness by sponsoring meetup groups in Tennessee.
There is no charge to become a member of meetup.com and many of the groups are free to join as well. Blue Cross is offering to cover the cost of hosting groups and currently plans to keep membership in those groups free of charge. This opportunity is available to anyone in the region with an interest in starting a meetup group. You do not have to be an employee to start a group or to get involved. You can apply to have Blue Cross sponsor your meetup group online at Facebook.
