Goals for Get In Gear
Educate participants on healthy living | Encourage physical activity on all levels
Raise money for non-profit organizations that also promote healthy living | Improve the health in Northeast Arkansas and Southern Missouri.
Because our region has significantly high levels of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, the focus will be to significantly change the population health outcomes for these three life threatening diseases through healthy living, education and increased participation.
Education / Health Screening
Several events will have multiple components, including an educational/informational piece to increase participants’ knowledge of the importance of healthy eating, daily exercise and preventative healthcare. In addition, some events will offer opportunities for free screening of key health metrics, i.e., weight, body fat
composition, waist circumference, blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and more.
Get in Gear Cup Award
New for 2019 is the Get in Gear Cup. The company with the highest participation through the entire 2019 series, will be awarded the Get in Gear Cup. The winner will retain the GIG cup for one year, and must win the series again to retain the Get in Gear Cup. This goal is to increase teamwork, enthusiasm, and healthy activities for your employees!
