CEO Challenge V Ends in a TIE!

Congratulations to our two CEO Challenge V champions: 
Bob Ramella of PA Roofing Systems
and Chris Parry of emkompas.  

The winners were announced at an “End of the Challenge but Beginning of a Healthier Lifestyle” celebration held last Thursday April 25 at Bella Frutteto Restaurant in Wexford.  Here are the champs pictured with their SWIF Athletics coaches.

In terms of the overall results, the CEO Challenge V participants:

  • Improved their total fitness score by an average of over 35 points
  • Showed significant improvements in each of the individual fitness tests, in most cases jumping 2, if not 3 categories
  • Averaged over 30 pounds of “fat loss”
  • Showed considerable improvements on the Functional Movement Screen (FMS)

This year’s Challenge put a large chunk of change in the co-winners’ pockets, but also funneled an equal amount to their charities of choice.  These latest donations have pushed the total that SWIF has provided to various charities through this Challenge and other SWIF-sponsored events to over $90,000.

The SWIF Athletics Coaches, most of this year’s Challenge participants as well as a smattering of prior years’ participants attended the celebration.  Check out the photos from the event:
