Mayor salutes health-concious schools and workplaces

Friday, September 14, 2018 by Katy McElroy

This morning, Mayor Steve Adler and the Mayor’s Health and Fitness Council will be giving awards to schools and workplaces that have gone above and beyond to promote health and well-being. The Mayor’s Healthiest Workplace and School Awards, which will be presented at an awards ceremony at 9 a.m. today at City Hall, are an extension of the Mayor’s Health and Fitness Council Partner Certification Program. The Mayor’s Health and Fitness Council created the program in 2007 to inspire workplaces to create comprehensive wellness programs and policies. Nine workplaces will receive partner certification this year, and 87 schools will receive an “exemplary” rating by the program. To cover the range of organizations that participate in this program, the workplace awards will be presented in the categories of small, medium, large, and extra-large – one organization will be chosen in each category. The healthiest schools award will be presented to four schools. In addition, an award will be given to the “Healthiest School District or Government Agency,” and one will be given to the “Most Innovative Workplace.”
