COS Wellness: 1st Annual Family & Friends Walk-A-Thon

Did you spot your favorite Connecticut Orthopaedics (CO) employee out walking  on June 1st?

At CO we care about the wellbeing of our patients, our community and ourselves. CO offers employees the opportunity to participate in the CO Wellness Program. The wellness committee’s focus is to provide a multiple prong approach towards wellness and engage employees in programs that affect all areas of their wellbeing, including but not limited to: physical activity, financial, social, community, nutrition, health and stress.

On June 1st, 2019 the CO Wellness Program hosted their 1st annual Family & Friends Walk-A-Thon. Over 200 participants attended. The goal of this event was to raise funds and awareness for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) while promoting wellness.

As a team, CO employees raised over $5000 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. That’s over 65 hours of Breast Cancer research!

This fun-filled day consisted of music, prizes, giveaways, smiles and of course a lot of walking! Congratulations to some of our prize winners:

  • Team with the Largest Donation: Surgical Center
  • Team with the Most Laps Walked: Sarah’s Soldiers
  • Team with the Best Shirts: Breast Friends
