Active RVA Corporate Connections Set for Nov. 18

Active RVA Corporate Connections is a great opportunity for HR representatives, Wellness Directors, and anyone interested in fostering an active workplace to get together to share ideas and best practices. The next installment of the event will be on Wednesday, November 18 at the local headquarters of McKesson, located at 9954 Mayland Drive, Richmond, VA 23233. The event will take place from 8:30am-10:00am and will include coffee and a light breakfast.

Topics will include a discussion on best practices for active workstations from McKesson representatives, as they have a variety of standing workstations in their new offices, part of the reason that the space has received Well Building Certification. We will also have a presentation from Paul Caminiti of Team Adrenaline, which works with local companies to provide on-site fitness training; he’ll be sharing his message and advice on overcoming some of the barriers that exist in creating opportunities for physical activity in the workplace. Jeff McIntyre, the new Director of Active RVA for Sports Backers, will also give an introduction and overview of Active RVA and the importance of workplace wellness to the overall initiative to inspire an active community and create opportunities for activity in places where people live and work.

Space will be limited so if you are interested in attending, please contact Pete Woody at pete@sportsbackers.org for a registration form. We hope to see you on November 18th!
