For the seventh consecutive year, BJC HealthCare and Trek Bike Co. have teamed up to reward employees who make time for fitness during their hectic holiday schedules. BJC employees were given the opportunity to document their fitness efforts during the holiday season and then enter the contest. Winners of the Twelve Days of Fitness contest were recently announced. One winner from each of the BJC hospitals was chosen to receive a custom-fitted Trek bike.
Tracy McMillen was the winner from Parkland Health Center. Tracy has worked in microbiology in the lab at Parkland Health Center for five years. “I was so surprised to hear that I’d won,” said Tracy. “I love bicycling, and my husband and I have been running and biking for fitness, so a new bike is a great reward. It’s such a great thing to do for your employees.”
The Twelve Days of Fitness Contest is one of a number of initiatives administered by BJC HealthCare’s health literacy team.
Parkland Health Center is part of BJC HealthCare which also includes St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the teaching hospitals for Washington University School of Medicine.
