It’s National Family Health and Fitness Day today! Let’s take a look at some of the great things Copart family members have done to encourage health and fitness within the Copart family.
The HR Department at Copart launched the Copart Jump Start Your Health Wellness Challenge. Copart employees were encouraged to build teams and start logging their active minutes during a six-week period. Everyone was motivated to get moving and log their activity. Some did laps around a local mall or walked the stairs at lunchtime, while others chose to participate in Copart’s weekly Run Club on Wednesday nights. The challenge declared a first, second and third place winner for both individuals as well as teams who participated in the challenge in getting fit and healthy for the New Year. Check out our blog post to see who the winners were!
Across the nation, Copart employees formed 21 teams within the MoPart network and grew their beards out to promote men’s health issues, and bring awareness to health risks and issues that predominantly affect men. Employees in the U.S. and Canada both participated and raised money to support this cause for the month of November. This past year, Copart raised $3,378 for the Movember Foundation. It’s just another way Copart employees support and promote the health of those in the Copart family as well as our own families! Check out the blog post from Copart Movember:
Copart Running Club
At the Dallas HQ office, Copart employees formed a running club. The running club meets every Wednesday evening at Brookhaven College for those who either want to change up their normal running routine or who want to start a new fitness activity. This running club is a great way to get to know other Copart family members during a healthy outdoor activity that ultimately contributes to your overall health and well-being.
Dodge for a Cause
In June, Copart’s very own dodgeball team, the Copart Crashers, competed in its first ever Dodgeball tournament to support Vogel Alcove, a local Dallas charity that helps and supports young children of homeless families. Thirty-two teams competed in the event to help raise $72,000 for Vogel Alcove. Not only did the team participate in an event that promotes being active, but it benefitted an organization that works to help homeless families get on track with their overall well-being and health. Way to go Copart Crashers! Check out photos from the event:
