The Healthy CEO Team enters the Global Corporate Challenge 2009!
Posted May 29 2009 10:35pm
I'm excited to share with you a new health initiative that we have undertaken at The Healthy CEO offices. We've joined the Global Corporate Challenge ( http://www.gettheworldmoving.com/ ) along with almost 8500 teams and nearly 60,000 people from countries across the world. Global Corporate Challenge is a 125 day health and wellbeing program that encourages employees, and workplaces to become, and stay active. Companies develop teams of seven and each teammember receives an embossed backpack with lots of goodies inside including two pedometers. Participants wear their pedometer everyday and log their steps on the GCC website the next day. Teams encourage and support each other and the website is an incredible virtual journey logging team's steps across the globe, complete with stunning pictures and facts on the foods and culture of the locations traversed. This year's global challenge began on May 21. The goal of the challenge is to encourage individuals and in this particular challenge, often sedentary corporate employees to get up, get moving, and develop life long healthy habits. I will keep you posted as to our progress, but you can check it for yourself by logging on as a spectator at http://www.gcc2009.com/
