EKPC and Clark Regional to hold walking competition to promote employee health

WINCHESTER, Ky. (Sept. 20, 2017) — East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC) and Clark Regional Medical Center will again conduct a friendly walking competition called Super Stroll 2017 that will last for about six weeks.

“This is the third year we’ve had this friendly competition to promote wellness in our community,” said EKPC CEO Tony Campbell. “Employees will document how many miles they walk each week from Sept. 22 through Nov. 3, and we’re encouraging employees at our power plants and all locations to get involved.”

“We’re energized to beat East Kentucky Power and to showcase to Clark County and surrounding areas our commitment to make our communities healthier,” said Clark Regional CEO Robert Parker. “Super Stroll 2017 is going to show local citizens that our nurses, doctors and other employees are actively involved in healthy lifestyles.”

Each Super Stroll participant at both companies will join a three-person team of their own choosing and appoint a captain. All mileage reporting is on the honor system, and participants can track their miles on a treadmill or wherever they wish to walk.

A kick-off breakfast for Super Stroll 2017 will take place at EKPC headquarters, 4775 Lexington Ave., on Sept. 21, from 7:30-8:30 a.m. The event will be telecast to all EKPC power plants and service centers.

Campbell and Parker will speak, along with keynote speaker Dr. LaTonia Sweet of Winchester, a passionate advocate of Kentuckians improving their health.

East Kentucky Power Cooperative is a not-for-profit cooperative providing wholesale electricity to 16 owner-member distribution cooperatives that serve 530,000 Kentucky homes, farms, businesses and industries across 87 counties.
