City Employees Defeat County Employees in Step Competition

The City kicked off its first year of its wellness program in June of 2010. The City’s program was funded by our insurance carrier, CEBT, and by LiveWell Chaffee County, a privately funded organization. One of the highlights of the program was a 4 week “10K-A-Day” competition in April.   Each participating employee received a pedometer that counted the employees steps for the day. City employees averaged 8,535 steps a day and County employees averaged 8,166 steps a day.
