Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Zeon Solutions, a rapidly growing enterprise e-commerce provider, announced that they have made a $1000 charitable contribution to Lad Lake. Lad Lake fosters the success of at-risk children and young adults throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest by guiding them to a path of independence and achievement (http://www.ladlake.org.)
Zeon Solutions held a 10-week fitness challenge where employees set weight loss and fitness goals for themselves, logged their progress toward their goals and participated in weekly weigh-ins. The employees set a collective goal for all participants to lose more than 35 pounds. Zeon Solutions’ management team pledged to recognize that achievement with a $1000 donation to a local charity.
“A healthy lifestyle is an important part of our culture,” said Brad Martell, general manager and vice president of Zeon Solutions. “We had nearly 100% participation; people embraced the challenge by joining a gym and changing their eating habits. Employees submitted the names of the charities they support and we voted to contribute to the good work of Lad Lake.”
The fitness challenge took place over 10 weeks and collectively, the participants lost more than 41 pounds. The office awarded $75 to the employee who lost the most weight, $50 to the employee who worked out the most, and held a $50 drawing to recognize one employee among the many who met their fitness goals during the challenge.
“Giving back to our community is also part of our culture at Zeon Solutions,” added Martell. “I’m proud of the way our employees took part in this challenge and pleased to be able to support the efforts of Lad Lake at the same time.”
