The CEO Pledge

For the betterment of my company, our employees, their families, and our country, I pledge to improve employee health and wellness by providing opportunities and resources for physical activity before, during or after the workdayand to enhance my own health and wellness by engaging in regular physical activity. 

What is the CEO Pledge Campaign?

The CEO Pledge is a national campaign promoted by the National Coalition for Promoting Physical Activity (NCPPA) to encourage every CEO in the United States to recognize physical activity as an important driver of employee health and business performance. 

Currently, more than 450 CEOs have signed the pledge to embrace physical activity and wellness for their employees, and themselves. The success of this initiative comes largely from IHRSA and ILC members reaching out to business leaders in their communities. Read more on the CEO Pledge from Club Business International.
