Salus Wisconsin Corporate Championship a Huge Success!

411Fit was a proud sponsor of Wisconsin’s FIRST EVER corporate run/walk wellness event and competition. More than 640 runners and walkers representing 50 Wisconsin businesses participated in the race. As the race director I was beyond pleased with the turnout and forever grateful for the support 411Fit offered to our inaugural event.

GE Healthcare workers swept the men’s, women’s and coed divisions of the event that started and ended at the Harley-Davidson Museum in downtown Milwaukee. David Wheeler, running for his GE corporate team, won the 5K race in 16 minutes, 15 seconds. His teammate and co-worker, Joe Herington, was just 11 seconds behind. Allison Arndt representing Bucyrus International won the women’s division in 18:48.

GE also had the largest team, with 81 runners at the start line. I send a huge congrats to Igor Stevic from GE for assembling an outstanding group of runners. Harley-Davidson came in second with 62 runners and walkers on race day.

We had a special award for the companies who could engage the highest percentage of their workforce. Honors for the highest percentage of workforce participation went to Synergy Strategic Fitness in the small company category, Willis of Wisconsin in medium and Strattec in large. Each company, along with GE, will receive 5 months of 411Fit’s program management functionality to assist in running an in house wellness program. Congrats!

We saw some great competition and camaraderie that made the event truly special. It was fun to see companies with their team logos on their shirt and on banners along the finish line. It created a real sense of community and I feel this event will be a great piece companies can add to their wellness initiatives.

411Fit was proud to help facilitate such an awesome opportunity for companies to grow their wellness muscles!

411Fit is Proud to Sponsor the Inaugural Salus Wisconsin Corporate Championship Run/Walk

411Fit feels a strong sense of commitment to promoting and enhancing wellness within the corporate community. That commitment is why 411Fit is proud to be a GOLD sponsor of Wisconsin’s first ever Corporate Championship run/walk event.

The Wisconsin Corporate Championship is the project of Salus Inc., a local corporate wellness provider that uses 411Fit to better serve their clients. The event is designed to promote employee health and wellness by creating an event that provides competition and camaraderie along with wellness education and resources. What better a way to join efforts than promoting an event that brings wellness full circle!

Salus Wisconsin Corporate Championship – a unique spin on a corporate race

The event is a team competition in the most pure sense. Individuals must sign up under their company and compete as team. Awards are naturally presented to the fastest finishers for team categories – Female, Male, and Mixed; the fastest overall male and female; and the fastest “C” level employee. However in the spirit of the event, the largest award goes to the company with the highest percentage of its employee population participating. This concept places higher value on participation in a wellness initiative than the fastest team.

As companies across the country are concerned about health care costs, there will be a Wellness Expo after the event with various vendors providing opportunities for companies to hear about wellness programs or initiatives that can help them. 411Fit will be on hand educating companies on how their employees can better communicate about their wellness and develop lasting behavior change.

This event will not only highlight Wisconsin businesses that truly value and support the health and well-being of their employees, but it will set a benchmark for such events across the country. 411Fit is proud to be a part of this inaugural event and looks forward to supporting for years to come.
