Get Fit Stay Fit Corporate Challenge 5k Run-Walk
The Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce Healthcare Committee is challenging all local companies to participate in Get Fit Stay Fit, a Corporate Challenge 5K Run-Walk sponsored by Consumers Life on Thursday, March 20.
A Team Captains Orientation (drop by) is on Thursday, January 10 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Georgia Mountains YMCA. If your company is not registered, SIGN UP today!
The Get Fit Stay Fit 5k begins at 6:00 p.m. on March 20 at Riverside Military Academy. The committee hopes to recruit 300 runners, and prizes will be awarded in all age groups. A special Runners Cup will be awarded to the Fastest Corporate Team, to the Fastest CEO and the Best Team Spirit. These cups will travel each year to the winning companies. There will also be an incentive for all employees to participate whether by running in the 5K or supporting their team.
Registration is $15 per runner, and proceeds from Get Fit Stay Fit will benefit youth wellness programs in Hall County. Lanier Running Club is assisting in the coordination of the running event, and the Georgia Mountains YMCA will provide a COMPLIMENTARY eight (8) week training program to all team members and individuals that register by January 10.
“Where the HealthSmart Interactive Health and Wellness Expo provided services, screenings and information, we can’t forget the corporate sector of Hall County,” said Jullie King, The Longstreet Clinic. “As we strive to become the healthiest community in Georgia, Get Fit Stay Fit seeks to highlight the many health benefits, encourage an employee exercise program and increase company morale and sense of teamwork.”
