Walking On Our Lunch Break

It can be challenging to find time to exercise during your hectic daily schedule, while juggling work and family commitments.

That’s why we encourage you to find small ways to add exercise into your daily routine. Something as quick as going for a short walk on your lunch break can have a real impact on your health — and give you the energy to attack the day!

Tim Huckle, our president and CEO, led the walk around our Fargo headquarters building. More than 160 of our employees followed.

“Everybody understands that exercise is important,” Huckle told a group of our employees before the walk. “Sometimes it’s hard to find time to do it. By the time you get home, you have family, you have children. You have a lot of other events. I think the purpose of (this walk) is to take advantage of the time that you spend at work to get your exercise in and get out and walk.”

If we can do it, you can too. Why not turn a working lunch into a walking lunch? Grab some friends and go for a short walk on your lunch break today.
