    Share & Encourage

    Promote your company's participation to your employees.

    Tell your employees about the event and how being fit and healthy benefits them, their families, and the company. Here are some tips to get people started:

    • Create department or team challenges
    • Provide incentives to top performing individuals or teams
    • Provide a pledge for every mile that they run, walk, or ride during Global Employee Health and Fitness Month
    • Match donations that employees earn
    Get creative about promoting the event within your company.  If you need flyers or other ideas check out the resources that we provide.  

    Exercise - Run, Walk, or Ride

    Get employees moving.

    Your GEHFM event powered by fitRaise allows your employees to earn donations with every mile they log for a partner charity. Employees can get pledges from friends and family to add to the impact of their fitness.


    Distance can be tracked in three ways:

    • Through the free fitRaise app for iPhone or Android
    • By linking a user's Fitbit account to fitRaise
    • By linking a user's Under Armour account to fitRaise (enabling apps such as MapMyRun, MapMyRide, and MapMyFitness)
    For more information about how the fitRaise events work, click here.


    See the impact of one month.

    When Global Employee Health and Fitness Month is over your business will receive a report that shows which employees participated, how many miles they completed during the month, and how much money they raised for charity.  


    You can also check within your own organization to see:

    • Were employees more productive
    • Did they have fewer sick days
    • Were employees more creative
    • Will healthcare costs be reduced

    The impact of GEHFM can be seen in a variety of ways for individuals, communities, companies, and supported charities.  There are ways to encourage fitness activities throughout the year with our technology partner, fitRaise.
