Way to Go! This sounds like fun and I think more employers should do this. How about a day on a weekend or during the summer, for the employees and their families to do something together that encourages fitness and fun?


Fond du Lac Area Businesses On Health (FABOH), an employer-owned business coalition in existence since 1992, announces the Third Annual National Employee Health and Fitness Day Employer Challenge.

The Employer Challenge is a physical activity competition amongst Fond du Lac County employers aimed at raising awareness of the importance of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle. Participating organizations will compete against those of similar size to determine which can log the most points per participant and have the highest participation percentage. As has been the case in prior years, Community bragging rights will be on the line!

The Challenge will be held May 18 to 22, with winners being announced during the week of June 8. Implementation toolkits have been created to minimize resources needed to participate in the challenge. In addition, as an added bonus, FABOH has arranged for all participants to have access to a wide range of community Fitness Centers at no cost during the week of the Challenge.

To sign-up your organization or for more information, call Katie Schwartz, FABOH executive assistant, at (920) 924-3780 or email kschwartz@faboh.com.
