RUN@WORK Day ®
If adults can lead by example, if companies can encourage healthy living through physical activity promotion, then together we can combat the national inactivity crisis gripping our nation and our children.
SAVE THE DATE: SEPTEMBER 20, 2013
On September 20, 2013 the Road Runners Club of America will promote the 8th Annual RUN@WORK Day and the 2nd Annual RUN@School Day, nationwide fitness efforts. Company-based wellness programs, human resources departments, running clubs, running events, running shoe stores, teachers, coaches parents, and individuals nationwide are encouraged to plan fun runs and walks around the country with their employers or at local schools.
The goal of RUN@WORK Day and RUN@School Day, presented by the Road Runners Club of America, is to encourage adults and children to get 30-minutes of exercise each day, in accordance with the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, either before work/school, during lunch, or immediately following work/school. RUN@WORK Day also encourages companies to help employees schedule time for physical activity. Incorporating exercise into one’s daily routine can markedly improve one’s overall physical health.
To help you plan your RUN@WORK Day event or a RUN@School Day event, the RRCA created the RUN@WORK Day and RUN@School Day Planning Kit and Fact Sheet.
To help promote your RUN@WORK Day event, the RRCA has created a general promotional poster. To obtain a free copy of the promotional poster, send a self addressed, postage paid, legal sized envelop to 1501 Lee Hwy, Ste 140, Arlington, VA, 22209 or order posters online.
