Team Decatur members are offered a free eight week training program to prepare for the run/walk event in September. Members have fun, get fit, and get a FREE Team Decatur t-shirt to wear during the race.
Team Decatur members join together before and after the run/walk at the 'team tent" to have fun, enjoy refreshments, and make new friends at the "World's Largest Office Party"!
This year is our last year, and we will end in a BIG way! New this year are a DJ at our tent, trophies for Best Male and Female finishers and some for other achievements, games, and who knows what else we will think of!
Team Decatur hosts social events throughout the year for members to gather for dinner at local restaurants. We invite you to join us and meet team members. Check out our blog www.beactivedecatur.com for updates.
What and when is the Kaiser Permanente Corporate Run/Walk?
The Kaiser Permanente Corporate Run/Walk & Fitness Program is a unique fitness promotion. It encourages a physically fit lifestyle for everyone, from walkers to joggers to competitive runners. The 8-week training program provided by Kaiser Permanente includes weekly fitness tips, training schedules for beginning and experienced walkers and runners, and culminates with the 5K Walk/Run in downtown Atlanta. The evening includes the "World's Largest Office Party" and a Health and Fitness Expo.
The 2015 Kaiser Permanente Corporate Run/Walk 5K was held in downtown Atlanta on Thursday, September 24 at 6:30 pm. Team Decatur has participated since 2010 and has been named "Most Fit City" three years in a row for having the most team members for a city team. In 2013 and 2014 the honor went to the City of Atlanta. We are happy that Atlanta has joined us as another participating city. Congratulations!
