DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - May 12, 2017 - PRLog -- FamilyWize Community Service Partnership and the United Way Volusia-Flagler Counties have announced the launch of "Healthy You, Happy Orlando," a 60-day campaign dedicated to improving the lives of Central Florida residents through prescription drug adherence and reducing monthly health costs.

Participants can vote for United Way Volusia-Flagler Counties (UWVFC) to receive $10,000 donated by FamilyWize. Those who voted for the winning local charity will be entered into a drawing to win $1,000.

To participate, residents will first download the Free FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card or app.

"We are grateful to participate in this contest that not only raises awareness about such an important resource for our residents, but also gives the United Way Volusia-Flagler Counties an opportunity to raise funds for our community," said Dennis Burns, CEO UWVFC. "We hope we can win the contest and also win $1,000 for one of our supporters."

The organizations involved in the campaign are: the United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties (http://www.unitedwayvfc.org/), Heart of Florida United Way, United Way of Lake & Sumter Counties (http://www.uwls.org/), and Mental Health Association of Central Florida (https://www.mhacf.org/).

"Now more than ever, families are struggling to afford their prescriptions," said Joseph Sanginiti, president and CEO of FamilyWize. "With 'Healthy You, Happy Orlando' we are helping to raise awareness of how people can save money on their medications, even when covered by insurance, while also continuing to support our cherished community partners who make such a positive impact on local residents."

FamilyWize is a community-based organization that negotiates discounts on prescription medications on behalf of patients. These patients then receive medications at lower prices, and pharmacies see healthier and happier patients. Accepted at more than 60,000 pharmacies nationwide and covering all FDA approved prescription medications, the FamilyWize card is free to everyone and has no eligibility requirements. Since its conception, FamilyWize has helped over 10 million Americans save more than $1 billion on prescription drugs.

To participate in the "Healthy You, Happy Orlando" campaign and read the official rules, visit https://familywize.org/Orlando. Deadline to enter is June 16.

In addition to offering a free prescription discount card and app, FamilyWize also offers the Medicine Cabinet, a new feature on their website which allows users to create a personal profile and easily find the lowest price for their prescriptions. Smartphone users can download the free app at the iOS App Store and Google Play.
