Beaulieu CEO challenges walkers
DALTON, Georgia - Beaulieu America chief executive officer Ralph Boe is challenging all of his company associates to improve their health by participating in his Million Mile Walking Challenge over the remainder of this year.
Boe challenged the more than 6,000 Beaulieu associates in January to walk a collective one million miles by 01 January 2010. He's now reminding them that there's a long way to go.
"We've reminded them that they'll enjoy a healthier body and better quality of life for the effort, plus we'll get an opportunity to lower our health insurance premiums," Boe said. "That's a pretty good motivator."
The Million Mile Challenge is part of Beaulieu's goal to be the employer of choice in floor covering and the excitement is spreading. Beaulieu walkers will start showing up at local run/walks like the Bill Gregory Healthcare Classic here on 02 May and on running trails throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Joe Gleaton, director of credit and collections at Beaulieu of Canada pledged to run 1,000 miles in 2009.
