HALIFAX, July 6, 2016 /CNW/ - SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts is pleased to announce the launch of an innovative campaign to promote health awareness among guests at the Hampton Inn by Hilton™ Halifax Downtown. The "Take the Stairs" campaign is designed to encourage guests to use the hotel's stairs rather than its elevators, by offering participating guests the chance to win a Garmin Vivofit® activity tracker in a weekly draw. Eight Vivofits will be given away over the two-month long campaign, which runs from July 1 to August 31.
Guests can enter the prize draw through a ballot, by correctly identifying where a special star sticker is placed within the hotel's stairwell, with the star moving daily. The campaign is designed to encourage guests to make exercise a part of their daily routine and to raise awareness of the importance of regular exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
"The 'Take the Stairs' campaign is an innovative initiative to encourage our guests to lead a more active lifestyle," says Steve Giblin, President and CEO of SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts. "We are committed to our guests' all-round wellness and enjoyment of our hotels, and this campaign is a fun way to encourage regular exercise, while also giving guests the opportunity to win a fantastic prize."
