Third Annual Walking Challenge Gets Employees Moving

The Health and Wellness Program at Regional One Health provides employees with many opportunities throughout the year to increase their physical activity and learn healthy habits. Regional One Health employees are focusing on health and wellness by taking part in employee health screenings, health fairs, and wellness classes.

The Coopwood Walking Challenge, named for Regional One Health President and CEO Dr. Reginald Coopwood, has become a favorite annual event, allowing employees to step up their physical activity through friendly competition. This year’s third annual Coopwood Walking Challenge included 780 participants on 65 teams. The walkers wore pedometers and logged steps from November 3 to December 14. Challenge participants walked 123,991,240 steps, which is equivalent to 58,707 miles.

The EEC’s came in first place with more than nine million steps, beating last year’s first place team total by more than one million steps.
