The Global CEO Pledge for Physical Activity
Joining the Cause to Get the World Moving
The CEO Pledge for Physical Activity is now a global movement. Why? Because our world is in a health care crisis, well beyond worst case scenarios even the experts had predicted only ten years ago. With heart disease, diabetes, obesity and depression on the rise, every organization in the world has an obligation and responsibility to lead its community.
The National Coalition for Promoting Physical Activity has a vision that one day, everyone will be physically active and they will live, work, and play in environments that facilitate regular physical activity. By supporting employee health and wellness initiatives in the workplace, companies can improve employee morale, increase productivity, enhance work quality, and reduce staggering health care costs. The CEO Pledge is part of our community outreach to help create a healthier world.
