After a long winter with too many visits from the Polar Vortex, summer is finally here. And with Memorial Day right around the corner, that means many people's plans call for summer vacations.

No matter where you're traveling this summer – a weekend getaway to Six Flags Great America or Wisconsin Dells, a day trip to Navy Pier, a Cubs or Sox game, the Taste of Chicago or an out-of-town getaway -- we want to be part of your summer fun.

Here at DM Foot and Ankle Associates, we're sponsoring a photo contest on Facebook -- Get Away With DMFA!

In May, June and July, we're inviting patients and community members to pick up a free, flip-flop stress reliever from our Lemont office at 14236 McCarthy Road. Take the flip-flop with you on vacation or as you partake in summer fun in and around the Chicago area, and post your photos on our Facebook page.

Winners in each category will win a $50 American Express gift card!

Here are all the details:

1. From May through July, pick up a free, flip-flop stress reliever with the DMFA logo at our front desk.

2. Take the flip-flop with you as you do something fun this summer – whether it’s a visit to the beach, attending a festival or concert, a neighborhood picnic or barbecue or traveling out of town.

3. Snap a photo with the flip flop during your travels. Keep in mind we’re giving away prizes in three categories: 1. Best Selfie 2. Most Unique 3. Best photo bomb.

4. Send us your flip-flop photos on Facebook.

5. To do so, link to our Facebook page or simply search for "DM Foot and Ankle Associates." Like us and hit the “message” button under the right hand side of our cover photo. In the white box that pops up, click “Add files.” Then simply choose the photo from your desktop to upload.

6. Don’t forget to write a short caption letting us know where the photo was taken and what you were doing. Then hit “Send."

7. We’ll post your photos on our Facebook page. A member of our staff will notify winners via Facebook messaging in August

Have a great time photographing the flip-flop during your adventures!
