National Nurses Week begins Monday, May 6, and AAOHN invites you to join other occupational and environmental health nurses, along with other nursing colleagues, to participate in the ANA sponsored National Bike Challenge. You can join the Challenge as part of Team AAOHN. ANA has challenged AAOHN to beat them. We need you to register and participate!
Join AAOHN in the National Bike Challenge
The National Bike Challenge, which rolls from May 1 to September 30, is a health and wellness initiative that encourages cycling for transportation and recreation. It’s a fun, free and interactive way to improve your fitness, build team camaraderie, and create healthy competition among workplaces and organizations. And you can even win real prizes, not to mention the prize of better health!
Join the Challenge at: www.nationalbikechallenge.org. Click the "Join" button and become a new user, or join via your Facebook profile. You now have the chance to list yourself or your team. Make sure to write it in exactly as AAOHN, so that you will be counted with us!
You do not have to be an advanced cyclist to participate; all skill levels can be a part of the Challenge. Every time you ride over the five months, you log your participation and mileage on the Challenge website.
The Challenge has many great prizes, and each month prizes will be given away to reward Challenge participants. The more you bike, the better your chance of winning (and the better the prizes) will be! Click here to view the prize list: http://www.endomondo.com/campaign/national/prizes.
AAOHN’s participation is in affiliation with the American Nurses Association (ANA), which organizes National Nurses Week (May 6-12) and encourages nurses to become a HealthyNurseTM role model. A HealthyNurse™ is a nurse who takes care of his or her personal health, safety, and wellness and lives life to their fullest capacity – physically, mentally, spiritually, and professionally. A HealthyNurse™ is a better role model, educator, and advocate – personally, for the family, for the community, for the work environment, and for the patient.
