Our CEO Gary Reedy and other CEOs across the country participated in our first ever CEOs fitness challenge – Fit2BeCancerFree – on April 19. One of the activities included an outdoor walk-break with Gary for staff in Atlanta.
CEOs Against Cancer chapter members were invited to participate in a one-day virtual fitness challenge to inspire healthy and active lifestyles within the workplace. The challenge was also designed to help corporate leaders build awareness, lead by example, and make a measurable difference in saving lives from cancer.
CEOs and executive leaders tracked their steps using a step tracking device donated by Garmin. Real-time updates were posted throughout the day on a live leaderboard.
Staff were encouraged to join in on the fun and track their steps for the day and see if they could beat any of our leaders on the leaderboard. Taking the steps instead of an elevator or escalator, blocking off time on your calendar for an afternoon walking break, or take a walking meeting are all good tips for incorporating physical activity into your work day. And, don’t forget to log your activity daily on the RedBrick Health portal.
Through our Healthy You staff wellness program, you can earn up to $300 each year ($75 each quarter) by being active and logging your activity points. The RedBrick Health portal provides easy access to expert guidance and support, including health coaching, online programs, wellness challenges, and numerous ways to earn points towards our quarterly bonus.
