Straighten Up, RI has an appetite for healthier tummies as well as spines; launches Healthy Recipe Contest.
The Straighten Up, RI campaign, sponsored by the Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island (CSRI), launched earlier this year to provide on-going advice from the Ocean State’s chiropractic physicians as to how to build and sustain spinal health during the pandemic. The campaign now wants to extend that advice to the diets of fellow Ocean Staters with a Healthy Recipe contest.
Starting March 15, Rhode Island residents can enter the contest by submitting as a comment to this post on our the Chiropractic Society of Rhode Island's Facebook page. You must like the page in order to respond. The recipe must include the hashtag #straightenupri.
CSRI chiropractors will select a winner on the 1st and 15th of the month for the healthiest/best recipe. Winners will receive a $25 gift card. The winner will be announced on CSRI’s Facebook page and on the home page of the Straighten Up, RI campaign’s home page, www.straightenupri.com.
“Diet is an extremely important of spinal health and overall health, especially during the current pandemic,” said Dr. Kristin Fabris, a chiropractic physician at Be Well Chiropractic in Providence and a member of CSRI’s board of directors. “With this addition to the Straighten Up, RI campaign, we’re looking to help Rhode Islanders eat better and feel better heading into spring and summer.”
The Straighten Up, RI campaign began January 15, 2021 with the intent of getting Rhode Islanders moving and addressing overall spinal health. It features articles, videos and blogs at www.StraightenUpRI.com covering a range of topics on stretching, home office ergonomics, pain reduction and overall wellness during and beyond the pandemic.
Winning recipes will also be featured on the site.
Additionally, the Straighten Up, RI campaign offers sponsorship opportunities for businesses and organizations looking to help spread the message of health and wellness during the pandemic. Sponsorship opportunities include three levels: Naming sponsorship - $5,000; Partner sponsorship - $2,500; and Friend sponsorship - $1,000.
To generate as much helpful content as possible, CSRI invites all Rhode Island chiropractors to participate. There’s no fee involved. Content can be submitted by e-mail to [email protected].
“We’ve extended this campaign to CSRI members and other RI chiropractors so that we can help get the word out to as many Rhode Islanders as possible,” said Dr. Michael Gottfried, a CSRI board member and chiropractic physician at Aquidneck Chiropractic in Middletown, RI. “When it comes to keeping people healthy during the pandemic, it literally is all hands on deck.”
