Fearless is Loving Winter in Buffalo!

Fearless is doing the backstroke in the middle of winter, spinning and gliding on the ice, and flexing your brain and your biceps.

Join BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York during Fearless February — a series of free, fun, family-friendly events during winter break and throughout the month!

  • Take a dip in the Olympic-sized swimming pool at UB’s Alumni Arena.
  • Lace up your skates at one of our free skate sessions at the Healthy Zone Rink, The Ice at Canalside, or LECOM Harborcenter.
  • Visit us at the Lockport Family YMCA for adventure and family fun.

Fearless is loving winter — at the pool, on the ice, or in the gym. See you in Fearless February!
