PacificSource Health Plans Encourages Fans to 'Bike to the Ballpark' this Summer to Cheer on the Chukars

Complimentary tickets available to first 50 fans who commute by bicycle to any one of three designated home games

(BOISE, Idaho.)—In an effort to encourage physical activity and to promote cycling among Idaho Falls residents, PacificSource Health Plans has teamed up with the Idaho Falls Chukars to encourage fans to “Bike to the Ballpark” this summer. The first 50 fans to arrive at PacificSource and commute to the designated games at Melaleuca Field by bicycle will receive a complimentary game ticket, and riders can enter a drawing to win a new bicycle. 

PacificSource has scheduled Bike to the Ballpark rallies to be held on three Saturdays during the season, including June 28, July 19 and Aug. 9. After gathering at 6pm at PacificSource Health Plans (901 Pier View Drive, Snake River Landing), fans will have an opportunity to enter a drawing to win a new bicycle before departing together and following an approximately 2-mile route to the ballpark in advance of the first pitch at 7:15pm.

“Bike to the Ballpark is a great way for PacificSource to support the Chukars and encourage Idaho Falls residents to stay active,” said Kathy Jost, communications manager for PacificSource.
