National Employee Health & Fitness Day, May 19, 1999

Fermilab and Wellness Works joins thousands of organizations across the country in celebrating National Employee Health & Fitness Day 1999—the largest work site health and fitness observance in the United States.

The National Association of Governor’s Councils on Physical Fitness and Sports has designated May 19, 1999, as the official national health observance. Millions of employees in corporate settings, schools, and hospitals are expected to observe the 11th annual event with worksite walks, or special activities involving employees during the workday.

Wellness Works again will sponsor this year’s event on Wednesday, May 19 from 11:30-1:00 on Ring Road beginning at A1. Walk, run, rollerblade, or ride your bike around the ring. A table will be set up at A1 where participants may sign-in, pick up their game ticket, and a bottle of water. Drop off a copy of your favorite low-fat recipe with your name, extension and mail station and be eligible to win a Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites cookbook. Stations will be set up around the ring where you will find games to play, prizes to win and cheers of encouragement. The largest percentage of participation from Divisions and Sections will win a trophy.

Through employee health promotion programs, organizations support their employees’ efforts to make healthy lifestyle changes, not just to encourage more exercise.

Relay for Life, June 25

Fermilab physicists Phil Martin and Al Russell, whose wives are both cancer survivors, are organizing a Fermilab team for the upcoming "Relay for Life," an American Cancer Society fundraiser. All night, starting on the evening of June 25 and finishing on the morning of June 26, teams of 10 to 12 people run or walk relays on the track of the Kane County Events Center. Each team member pledges to raise $100 for the event, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. For info, or to join the Fermilab relay team, call Phil Martin x4547 or Al Russell x4829.
