JOHANNESBURG, 8 JUNE 2023 – Medshield Medical Scheme proudly announces its involvement in the Suncoast East Coast Radio Big Walk 2023. Dubbed the biggest walking event in KZN, it is the perfect opportunity for families and friends to come together to create memorable fun and healthy experiences.
“The theme for this year’s Suncoast East Coast Radio Big Walk event is ‘Here with you, every step of the way’, which not only underscores East Coast Radio and Suncoasts’ commitment to the KZN community but encapsulates Medshield’s offering to all South Africans. In our continued support of promoting overall wellness for the entire family we decided to get involved in this family-friendly initiative,” states Kevin Aron, Principal Officer at Medshield Medical Scheme.
“Protecting your health and finances is crucial – and that’s where Medshield comes in. Visit our Medshield booth for a free five-minute full health screening. While you are there, pose at the photo booth, stand a chance to win one of the fantastic spot prizes, and share photos on social media to win an R2000 Sportsman’s Warehouse voucher,” says Aron. Medshield will also be at the race pack collection booths at registration, supporting our members and non-members participating in the race.
The health screening machine is a non-invasive, full-body screening device powered by AI. It makes health monitoring comfortable, quick and easy. Stepping onto the device provides real-time results about users’ Weight, Height, Body Fat, Blood Pressure, Pulse / Heart Rate, Temperature, BMI, Total Body Water, Standard Body Weight, Fat-Free Mass and much more.
