Growing Bolder and Florida Hospital Partner to Launch the Healthy 100 Central Florida Executive ChallengePosted June 13, 2012, 10:26 am
Growing Bolder has teamed with Florida Hospital to launch the Healthy 100 Central Florida Executive Challenge, a community-wide effort to inspire health and wellness programs in the workplace. The Challenge features top local corporate and civic leaders in action as they pursue a healthy lifestyle and encourage their employees to do the same.
The Challenge is part of a growing grassroots effort to make Central Florida America’s healthiest community. “It’s a great thing to aspire to,” says Florida Hospital CEO Lars Houmann. “I believe we have every possible ingredient necessary to do just that. We just need a commitment and we need a plan.”
Growing Bolder, producers of the nationally distributed Growing Bolder TV and Radio shows, created the Challenge in honor of former Visit Orlando CEO Gary Sain. “Gary believed that healthy employees make for healthy companies and it was the responsibility of executives to lead the way,” says Growing Bolder CEO Marc Middleton. “He lived every day with passion and enthusiasm and was an inspiration to all around him. The Central Florida Executive Challenge helps keep his inspiration alive.”
A new website, http://ExecutiveChallenge.Healthy100.org, features Growing Bolder-produced videos showcasing health conscious executives and their companies and encourages employers and employees throughout Central Florida to start making healthy changes. The site provides tools and resources from Florida Hospital’s Healthy 100 program including inspirational tips, nutritional advice, fitness suggestions and more.
Executives are encouraged to sign up for the Challenge at http://executivechallenge.healthy100.org, where they may be featured in a video, blog or other showcase. Employees can nominate their companies and leaders, and share how they’re making health and fitness a priority at work.
Executives already featured in the Central Florida Executive Challenge include: Lars Houmann, President and CEO of Florida Hospital; Simon Hemus, President and COO of Tupperware Brands; Harris Rosen, President and COO of Rosen Hotel and Resorts and Ann Sonntag, Publisher of Orlando Business Journal.
The Central Florida Executive Challenge is free and open to anyone. Participants receive helpful tools, support and exclusive offers including a Healthy 100 Deals card, discounts on Executive Health Assessments at Florida Hospital, discount codes to the Growing Bolder store, a free e-book and more.
