Sanibel Captiva Community Bank placed fourth out of 72 teams in in Healthy Lee’s 2019 Million Mile Movement, a community-wide challenge to Lee County residents to collectively log 1 million miles in less than three months.
SanCapStrong, the bank’s team of 45, competed against teams double and triple their size and finished with a total of 3,062,945 “moves” and 15,418 miles. The bank also ranked third highest for movement average per participant with 343 average miles per team member.
The bank’s wellness committee spearheaded joining the Million Mile Movement in fall 2018 to encourage healthy activities for employees, as the bank prioritizes workplace wellness. Participating employees logged movements for 90 days by running, paddleboarding, walking, weight training and other activities. Some employees also formed corporate teams to compete in local races, including an all-female team in the recent Muddy Princess 5K Obstacle Mud Run in Punta Gorda.
Healthy Lee is a community collaboration made up of local businesses, health, government, school, religious and community organizations committed to building a healthier Lee County by empowering and inspiring residents to live healthier, more active lives.
