“As a company, we’ve always been focused on fitness and overall wellness by providing our employees with opportunities to take part in company-sponsored physical activities and fitness programs,” said Jack Guidry, President and CEO of W&O. “Our ‘W&O: We Are Fit’ employee program is a perfect example of how W&O advocates employee fitness, and how taking part in events like the Ragnar Relay allows our employees to express themselves physically.”

The Ragnar Relay drew more than 700 people to the Clearwater area for the 194-mile trek to Daytona Beach. Teams included either six or twelve runners who each ran three legs of the race, totaling an average of 16 miles of running per team member.

The W&O team included Jack Guidry, President & CEO; Peter Osterman; Steve Stafford; Alex Piquer; Sandy White; Rogier Blokdijk; Kyle Posey; Lisa Collins; Carl Herman; Mike Page; Art Parrish and Colin Luke. 

The W&O: We Are Fit program combines individual and group activities that incorporate educational material to engage employees in physical fitness and overall wellness.  The program involves health checks/seminars, fitness competitions and sponsorship programs.  Employees from all of W&O’s 15 locations take part in the We Are Fit program within their individual communities.
