May is Global Employee Health and Fitness Month (GEHFM). An initiative of The National Association for Heath and Fitness (NAHF), the focus is to help improve qualify of life by promoting physical fitness, sports, and healthy lifestyles. GEHFM has resulted in thousands of employees leading healthier lives since it's founding in 1979.
At Mutual Assurance, 80% of our employees are competing in our first annual Charity Fitness Challenge. Through out the entire month, participating staff has been split into two teams and will log workouts and exercise to win points. Every 15 minutes of exercise will amount to 5 points. The team with the most points at the end of the month will win $1000 for the charity of their choice, and the runner-up team will win $500 for their chosen charity.
With marathon runners, C25K participants, and team organized walking events, our employees are motivated to move!
