In the spring of 2015 WE – Marietta City Schools – were the Winners!!!! We beat out Cobb County Schools, WellStar Health Systems, and many other businesses and organizations. Within MCS the PLC was the winning location and Oscar Bennett the highest performing individual - we will want their trophies back…in order to add the next winners names to the plaque (they will have to earn them again…if they can)!
For those of you that were a part of the process back then here’s your chance for redemption!
For those of you that did not participate – or are new and have no idea what I am talking about – here’s your chance to help your building or facility bring home that “Golden Sneaker” – and bragging rights!
Attached is a flier with general information and more importantly also a “How-to-Guide” to get you signed up!
In general, this is a fun opportunity to help motivate you and your co-workers to get, or keep, moving! And it is not just for walkers or those hard core exercise enthusiasts. There are 80 different ‘activities’ – including such things as: cleaning, child care, CrossFit, jumping rope, motor cross, surfing, vacuuming, yard work, Zumba – you name it they have it (or we can request it added).
In addition to the obvious health benefits of movement the Walk Cobb organization has weekly drawings – we had several winners – including at least one Fit Bit Winner here in MCS. We are also looking at providing some incentives to the MCS Group participants and we encourage each building to come up with their own incentives (some suggestions will follow).
