Everyone is aware that fitness and healthy eating is important, and it is increasingly being recognized that a healthy workforce is beneficial to employers too. By creating a positive, safe and healthy environment for employees, you can increase morale, improve your employees’ work/life balance and, in turn, positively impact your business.
Striving toward a healthier community has long been a goal of the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce. In the spirit of that commitment, we will again be participating in this year’s Ardmore Corporate Fitness Challenge (Ardmore CFC) to be held May 21st and the week of May 28th – June 1st, 2019.
The goal of this event is to bring the Ardmore area businesses and their employees together for a week of athletic competition, team-building and improved physical fitness. Ardmore CFC has been hosting this community event since 2014 and the Chamber has participated every year. As a community of businesses, it is an excellent way to promote team building and morale within as well as to support two local non-profit organizations.
The primary beneficiary of the event is Cities In Schools (CIS). CIS provides after-school and summer programs with a focus on literacy for over 200 young people in the Ardmore area. Girls on the Run of Southern Oklahoma also benefits when employees participate in the GOTR 5K and Glow Run. Girls on the Run is a youth development program that focuses on building character through physical activity and accomplishment.
This Challenge is completely free to all Chamber and AYP members who would like to participate on our team. There are several options in which to participate in this community event. Please see the event schedule at chamber.ardmore.org and contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to participate in any events.
