Terryberry Expands Popular Workplace Walking Challenge
Last year, Terryberry introduced the first annual West Michigan Walking Challenge. It was a hit with 52 companies walking over one billion steps.
With next week kicking off the second West Michigan Walking Challenge and an impressive 100 + organizations signed up, Terryberry is excited to announce the launch of the inaugural Arizona Walking Challenge. The 6-week walking competition encourages businesses in the state of Arizona to step up their wellness game.
Mike Byam, fourth-generation managing partner of Terryberry says, “Through both our wellness program and similar efforts at companies we work with, we’ve learned that employees who exercise regularly improve both a company’s bottom line and its culture and now we’re hoping to see that trend spread across Arizona.”
The Arizona Walking Challenge will run from Oct. 1 through Nov. 11, with winners being named at an awards celebration on Nov. 16. Awards will be presented to the businesses that have the best participation, most creative social media posts, the highest number of average steps per employee, and more. Enrollment is underway now.
