Representatives from companies and groups throughout Arkansas and the nation gathered at the Statehouse Convention Center today to kick off the 2015 Blue & You Fitness Challenge. Groups and individuals at the kickoff committed to “Just Move” and start living a happier and healthier life.
The Blue & You Fitness Challenge is held from March 1 through May 31 and is hosted by Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) and the Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS). The Challenge encourages employees to work toward the public health recommendation of 30 minutes of physical activity each day for adults, most days of the week. The exercise competition has grown from two entities in 2004 to more than 150 groups with nearly 6,500 employees/individuals competing in 2015.
“Thousands of people are making a commitment to ‘just move’ to improve their lives and start living happier and healthier lives by participating in the Challenge this year,” said Richard Cooper, vice president of Human Resources for Arkansas Blue Cross and team champion for the Challenge.
