RUN@WORK and RUN@School Day Participants Share Pictures, Reflections
Throughout last Friday’s 8th Annual RRCA RUN@Work Day and 2nd Annual RUN@School Day, many participants took to social media to share pictures of and observations on how they were marking the day using the hashtag #runatwork . Their images and reflections produced a wonderful timeline that represented not only the rich diversity of offices, workplaces and schools taking part, but also the tremendous impact of the event.
The below Storify a nice visual summary of what RUN@WORK and RUN@School Day participants contributed of their experiences from the day. Highlights include:
The goal of RUN@WORK and RUN@School Day is to encourage adults and children to get 30-minutes of exercise each day, in accordance with the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, either in the morning, during lunch, or immediately following work or school. RUN@WORK and RUN@School 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.
