Did you know that studies have linked long periods of sitting with an increased risk for diabetes, heart disease and even cancer? Sedentary days have also been shown to increase anxiety.
According to Dr. James Levine, “Sitting is more dangerous than smoking, kills more people than HIV, and is more treacherous than parachuting. We are sitting ourselves to death.”
To combat this, we are getting physical with a friendly workplace competition at the Coye Law Firm!
With our Distance Challenge beginning on Valentine's Day, we are racing to see who can run/walk the longest distance leading up to the 10th Annual Fiddler's Green 5k on March 3rd. The challenge ends March 4th, the day after the 5k, and the winner takes a pool of cash!
Coye Law Firm employees will also participate in the Fiddler's Green 5k to raise money for charity! All proceeds from the event will go to Habitat for Humanity and CECO (Conductive Education Center of Orlando).
We would love for you to meet us there! Here are the event details:
When: Saturday, March 3rd

Cost: $30 through Feb 16th; $35 after Feb 16th; $40 day of event; $25 for students
