RAC staff leave the car at home
THEY might be known for car insurance, but RAC WA swapped wheels for sports shoes on October 14.
To support the fifthannual Walk Over October and Ride2Work Day, 87 staff members actively commuted to work, received a free healthy breakfast, and went in a draw to win health and wellness prizes.
Event organiser Kendell Terrell said RAC WA’s response to the Healthier Workplace WA and Heart Foundation campaign had been overwhelmingly positive.
“We have been running Walk Over October for a few years now, and it really helps encourage and inspire more staff members to walk and cycle to work each year, and continue to well after October,” Ms Terrell said.
New end-of-trip facilities were recently installed at the RAC office.
Heart Foundation WA cardiovascular health director Trevor Shilton said walking was a great way to fit exercise into the daily family routine.
“More than 6.4 million Australians are doing less than the hour and a half of physical activity they need each week for good health,” he said.
