Over 35 associates took the challenge of participating in Ghertner & Company’s inaugural Turkey Wobble 5k to promote better health. Held on Friday afternoon, November 18th, the event was sponsored by the company’s wellness “Champs” to give co-workers an incentive to get active, especially around the holidays. The 3.1 mile loop took walkers and runners along the Cumberland river via the MetroCenter Greenway. Ghertner & Company rewarded all those involved with a paid half day off while Humana insurance, the company’s provider, gave team members the opportunity to earn vitality points through activities such as these to spend in their online store.
Wellness Champs include a representative from many departments throughout the company. They are Stacy Adams, Rusty Baltz, Juan Carey, Steve Ghertner, Kelly Ronan, Bob Wellborn, Erica Willis, and Cassandra Watkins.
