Entering is easy!

Anyone age 9 (as of June 1st) and older can submit a 15 second video with sun safe tips for preventing skin cancer and up to 10 winners will receive a Schwinn Cruiser bike! Plus the top 10 ranked video submissions will be posted on John Wayne Cancer Foundation’s social channels and website. Talk about 15 seconds of fame!

Videos can be submitted until August 24th so start brainstorming now! Entries will be accepted on YouTube, Instagram and can be submitted here: http://bit.ly/SunSafe4Schwinn

Both Schwinn through its nonprofit foundation Helmet on Heads and John Wayne Cancer Foundation are committed to educate the public about staying safe while having fun outdoors. Safe habits are best learned when young and can be contagious when the youth get behind it. After all who better to communicate the importance of a healthy lifestyle to kids than kids themselves!

Need a bit of inspiration to get started? Think of the 5 sun safe tips: sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, cover with clothing and seek shade. Check out this video below that several junior lifeguards put together to remind people to say #sunsafe4schwinn this summer and every summer!

Schwinn’s Love in Tandem Valentine’s Day Competition

Who wouldn’t want to win a Schwinn Tandem bike?S14_26U_TangoTandem_SLV

That is exactly what we thought!

The Schwinn Team insisted on doing something to celebrate that special day of the year that spreads joy, friendship, and love…just like our bikes do 😉

Thus is born the Schwinn “Love in Tandem” contest.

It is so easy to enter and super fun.  You simply need a Facebook account or Vine account.  Followers on Facebook need to post a picture of themselves and a loved one doing something in sync and use the #schwinnlove to tag the photo.  The content may or may not include a bike; just keep it clean!  The more unique and clever the better.

For Vine users, they are asked to create a unique Vine video of themselves and a loved one doing something together in sync and hashtag the video #schinnlove.

The idea is that if you can prove that you and a friend or sweetheart are able to do one thing in sync then you will also be  able to ride the prize, a new Schwinn Tandem bike.

Oh, and If you haven’t had a chance to check out Schwinn on Pinterest, Schwinn Bikes http://www.pinterest.com/schwinnbikes/ released its Schwinn Love Valentine’s day board today, which is filled with Valentine’s Day inspired bikes, and lots of love!


Let’s go for a ride!
