ownnow_logoGenKP is thrilled to announce our partnership with the #OwnNow campaign, an exciting initiative to encourage millennials to own their health, push life farther, and refuse to settle for less. Kaiser Permanente has partnered with NBA stars Stephen Curry and Chris Paul to inspire young adults to lead active lifestyles and secure the health care coverage they need.

On December 18, hundreds of excited fans stopped by Richmond’s Hilltop Mall to meet Golden State Warrior and #OwnNow ambassador Stephen Curry. With a canned food donation, fans were able to participate in a meet-and-greet and take a photo with the famed point guard. GenKP represented at the event with communications lead Lauren Duffy tweeting from the @kpownnow handle, sharing the event’s excitement with followers.

Before the meet-and-greet session, Curry spoke to the pumped up crowd about making healthy living a priority, and the importance of getting yourself and your family covered.

In partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Curry met Emilio Marco Bejarano Penn from Oakland, an eight-year-old whose wish was to meet Curry, and whose parents are KP employees.

Curry finished up the night with a raffle of a signed basketball and a quick bike ride – reminding all of us to keep moving, take it to the next level, and keep owning now!
