Today is National Run@Work Day
Encourage your co-workers to get 30-minutes of exercise a day
The Road Runners Club of America is proud to promote the 5th Annual National Run@Work Day. Organizations around the country are working together today to promote the importance of physical activity and healthy living.
The goal of Run@Work Day is to raise awareness about the importance of daily physical activity for adults. Company-based wellness programs, human resources departments, running clubs, running events, running shoe stores, and individuals nationwide are encouraged to plan fun runs and walks with their employers. National Run@Work Day events are community based events that promote and provide the opportunity for individuals to incorporate at least 30-minutes of exercise into their daily routine either before work, during lunch, or immediately following work. Incorporating exercise into one’s daily routine can markedly improve one’s overall physical health.
“Participation in Run@Work Day is an important step in raising awareness about the importance of daily physical activity. If adults can lead by example, if companies can encourage healthy living, then together we can combat the national inactivity crisis gripping our nation and our children,” explains Jean Knaack, RRCA executive director.
Run@Work Day supports several of the strategies outlined in the National Physical Activity Plan, launched on May 3, 2010. More specifically, Run@Work Day events highlight how nonprofit and for-profit sports organizations can work directly with business and industry to help promote physical fitness in the work environment.
