Join us for the Fittest Company Challenge Luncheon on November 24
We will hold our annual Fittest Company Luncheon on Tuesday, November 24 at noon. Attendees will learn more about the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon and its related event, the Fittest Company Challenge, sponsored by Humana. They will hear from local business representatives about their commitment to wellness and why they choose to encourage employees to participate in the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon. Also learn tips and ideas as to how to earn more miles (and points) for your company, so that hopefully your employer can take home an award in the 2016 Fittest Company Challenge!
There is no cost to attend and lunch will be provided, however you must RSVP. Contact us at for more information.
