As buzz about the New Year started this past November, and talks of getting fit, eating healthy and being more active filled the Copart locations; we decided to bring a little healthy competition to the Copart family.
We launched the Jump Start Your Health Wellness Challenge! Copart employees were encouraged to build teams and start logging their active minutes during a six-week period from November 30th to January 8th. Everyone was motivated to get moving and log their activity. Some did laps around a local mall or walked the stairs at lunch time, while others chose to participate in Copart’s weekly Run Club on Wednesday nights.
“We have several benefits in place to help everyone at Copart stay healthy, and this Wellness Challenge was a fun way to get everyone to come together and focus on being active in their own way,” said Jennifer Hale, Copart’s Benefits Specialist. “I heard stories of some who were using the challenge to stay on track to train for a big race and others who used it as an opportunity to learn a new skill like Tai Chi. A big thanks to everyone who got moving and participated in the Jump Start Your Health Wellness Challenge.”
The results are in, and we’re excited to congratulate our winners!
