As a way to support each other in our attempt to not only talk the talk around Healthy Living but also walk the walk, (and I guess run the run too) HCZ is starting an exercise club called “Team WIT”. That is right, Team “Whatever It Takes”. This group of employees is committed to doing Whatever it Takes to:
· Support each other in making a lifelong commitment to Healthy Living;
· Encourage each other to commit to a consistent exercise routine, which will include training together;
· Support each other to make healthier food choices at work and beyond; and
· Support each other in our attempts to manage our stress and help to boost staff morale.
Team WIT will participate in physical activities such as walking, running, biking, swimming, as well as iron man/woman competitions, biathlons, half marathons, and mud runs. This will be a fun way for us to stay healthy and build camaraderie at the same time.
We will post the events on the HCZ intranet and on the Healthy Living website. You should check these sites regularly to see our menu of activities and opportunities to train together at the Armory and other outdoor venues. Our first event is the Revlon Run/Walk on May 5th –. Look out for the details.
There are no better leaders in this country than the hard working employees of HCZ. We want to ensure that we keep ourselves strong, healthy and focused so that we can continue to serve the children and families of Harlem.
If you have any questions, please contact Deborah Carroll (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Anne Williams-Isom (email@example.com) .
Team WIT- Keeping Ourselves and the Community Strong!
