LexisNexis and the AHA Heart Walk - July Update!

August 06, 2021

This year, LexisNexis employees across the United States are participating in a months-long American Heart Association (AHA) Heart Walk fundraiser and wellness initiative.  Our goals are to get employees and their families on a wellness journey by moving more and also engaged in community support through the AHA. Employees are logging their move minutes online, competing with teams from offices in Raleigh, New York City, Dayton and beyond. We’re extremely proud of the effort our colleagues have put into this challenge and to achieve our goal of raising $100,000 for the American Heart Association.

So far, 230 LexisNexis employees across six sites have logged more than 520,000 minutes of movement in June and July! Each participant is logging an average of 107 minutes per day. And we’ve currently raised $32,020!

Here's a look at the overall minutes so far:

And how did we do just in July?

The person with the most minutes each month wins a $75 gift card. In July, our winner was Adam Millay, a telephonic solutions consultant in our Dayton office. We asked Adam a few questions about the challenge:

Are you walking to honor a friend or family member?

Heart disease runs in my family, so I am staying active so I am doing it for family members and to avoid any hereditary impacts.

Where do you like to walk or run?

I prefer somewhere outdoors, but I have been running on a treadmill and utilizing my home gym.

What motivates you to keep going?

Once you have established a routine, it just become natural.  I typically have three sessions of exercise a day – morning, lunch, and evening.

Do you have a song that gets you pumped?

Not particularly, my musical tastes change with my overall mood so it really depends on the day.

What message would you like to give to your colleagues to motivate them?

Walking, running, or exercise does more than just improve your health – it improves your mental state and overall mood.

Lots of people like to listen to music while running or walking. A song with a BPM (beats per minute) between 120 and 150 help set a great pace for being active. What’s your running jam? Here’s one we like, Ozzy Osbourne’s 1980 smash hit, “Crazy Train.” Watch it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/tMDFv5m18Pw
