To increase engagement, participants received a free one-week membership to participating fitness centers during the competition. More than 1,100 employees participated in the event, a 23% increase over last year.
“We were very pleased with the number of employers participating this year as well as their success in engaging employees in this worthwhile challenge,” said Larry Richardson, FABOH executive director. “The National Employee Health and Fitness Day Employer Challenge served as a nice warm-up for the three-month Get Up & Go exercise challenge we will be offering the community this fall in conjunction with the Well-City Fond du Lac initiative.”
