Heads up: Run@Work Day – September 16, 2011

Well, September is finally here and we just wanted to let everyone know about The Road Runners Club of America’s Run@Work day coming up in a couple of weeks.

The goal of RUN@WORK Day, presented by the Road Runners Club of America, is to encourage adults to get 30-minutes of exercise each day, in accordance with the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, either before work, during lunch, or immediately following work.  RUN@WORK Day also encourages companies to help employees schedule time for physical activity. Incorporating exercise into one’s daily routine can markedly improve one’s overall physical health.

If you’re interested, think about what you could do to get your coworkers around the office up and moving that day and also encourage them to start regularly exercising.  RRCA even has a poster you can utilize for promoting your event.

We’ll be posting some additional info in the coming week.
