The Enjoyments of Rev Your Bev

Hello, my name is Samera and I attend Brunswick High School in Lawrenceville. This is my first year in Y Street, and so far it’s been a blast. We recently held a Rev Your Bev Event at our school to celebrate the campaign and I enjoyed it.

The Rev Your Bev campaign encourages everyone to choose water. Consuming too many sugary beverages can lead to diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Rev Your Bev is a campaign that wants to reach everyone with its messaging. It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, Rev Your Bev wants to improve the health of all Virginians.

For our Rev Your Bev event, we set up a station during lunch to educate students and adults about healthy hydration, and I believe it was effective. We worked hard and enjoyed it. My fellow youth members and I went around engaging our school community in conversations about the campaign. We encouraged everyone to visit our table to try water samples that were infused with fruit. We also got them to fill out a support card and once completed, they were able to spin a wheel for a prize. Participants could win a Rev Your Bev Cup, Straw, Stickers, or a Bracelet. I believe my peers enjoyed spinning the prize wheel and learning about Rev Your Bev!

Rev Your Bev is important to me because I have family and friends that have been diagnosed with diabetes. I want to see them get better by encouraging and promoting healthy behaviors. I would love to see everyone adopt healthier habits that’s why I joined Y Street and have been working on the Rev Your Bev campaign. I hope you’ll join us by supporting our campaigns, not just Rev Your Bev but also Share The Air too.
