The Phoenix Suns and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ) announce WebPT as the winner of the “Get Fit and Fearless with the Suns” contest. More than 175 businesses submitted entries showcasing how they support their employees’ health and wellness at work. Fifty of WebPT’s more than 300 employees will receive a free, full-day Suns Training Session at Talking Stick Resort Arena on March 16.
The “Get Fit and Fearless with the Suns” wellness clinic at Talking Stick Resort Arena will provide WebPT with tips and tricks for staying physically fit from the Phoenix Suns training staff. In addition to providing advice on leading a healthy lifestyle, the training staff will guide the group through the same stretches and drills that Suns players complete before each workout, practice or game.
“Being a healthcare IT company serving the rehab industry, we are big advocates and promoters of health and wellness, and believe healthy habits create an energized workplace,” said Heidi Jannenga, co-founder and president of WebPT. “We have an established wellness program at WebPT, but are always looking for innovative ideas and are very excited to learn from the pros. We need more programs like these in our community and are grateful to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona and the Phoenix Suns for supporting this important initiative.”
WebPT’s employees will also enjoy locker room access, complete with customized nameplates on lockers, as well as Suns athletic shirts and bags. The Suns Wellness Clinic will also include appearances by The Gorilla and members of the Suns Dancers, and will culminate with a catered healthy lunch for all participants.
“We are proud to bring this rare and inspiring opportunity to the Arizona business community,” said Mike Tilton, vice president of sales BCBSAZ. “We are excited to see WebPT’s employees train with the Suns staff and celebrate their dedication to being a healthy workplace.”
