Challenge Accepted! R&R Particpating in Top 100 Active Companies Challenge

Posted by R&R Insurance

“For people who sit most of the day, their risk of a heart attack is about the same as smoking.” – Martha Grogan, Cardiologist, Mayo Clinic

R&R is excited to be participating in the WELCOA (Wellness Council of America) Top 100 Active Companies Challenge for 2015. Aimed to combat sedentary behavior, the Challenge triggers positive habit changes which make people continuously active throughout their daily life. The more active a person is, the healthier they become. The healthier they become, the happier their life is. And the healthier employees are, the lower the time and cost on health care.

To participate in the Challenge, companies must have 30% of their employees engaged throughout the 12-week program. In its pilot year, there are 38 companies taking part in Wisconsin. R&R is proud to be ranked in 5th place during week 6, with roughly 50% of our employees participating.

Along with the physical activity and educational aspects of the program, R&R employees have created entertaining contests to increase participation and engagement. Some of the latest contest winners included the following profile photos:


WELCOA will be giving statewide and nationwide recognition to companies that are actively fighting sedentary behavior. We are excited to share our final results with you at the end of the Challenge.

Stay tuned! And in the meantime, take time to MOVE throughout your day!

Riley Enright Walks the Talk

Posted by Stephanie Katzfey

Riley EnrightR&R's own Riley Enright has a featured article in the Milwaukee Business Journal as a sales executive with an active and healthy lifestyle.

"I've always been considered a fairly energetic individual." Anyone who has worked with Riley know that truer words were never spoken! Riley's active lifestyle outside of the office has been a great example when speaking with clients about their own wellness initiatives: "to best explain it, to best understand it - live it."

After growing up in a family of 10, fitness and being active has always been a part of Riley's lifestyle.  As an adult, what had started as a few casual bike rides has now grown in to biking three days a week, with 50- to 60-mile weekend rides, plus running and adding tennis in to his regular routine.

Not only is Riley riding for his own well-being, but he also rides for charity.  The Firehouse 50 in Cable, WI is one of the largest and oldest citizen races in the Midwest and raises money for the Grand View Fire Department.  And in an effort to raise money for the Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation, Riley rides from Door County to Milwaukee.

Great job, Riley!
