Disney Cast Members Couch to 5K Plus

The fun and inventive runDisney events have been inspiring Disney fans around the world to get up off the couch and get moving. But the Walt Disney Company's commitment to health and fitness isn't just about getting guests to visit the property. Since 2011 hundreds of Cast Members have been taking steps in the right direction to become more active.

Disney feels an obligation to inspire Cast Members to take a more proactive approach for their health. One fun program that it offers Cast Members to participate in is called Couch to 5K Plus and employees starting from all levels of fitness are using it to get moving toward a healthier lifestyle. The program helps each participant to create a personalized training plan using online resources, like the Trainer Tool at Active.com, to coach Cast Members in becoming more active.

Disney Cast Members have many wellness options to choose from, and Tracy Swanson, Vice President for Benefits, Health and Workforce Solutions says that "Being active helps our Cast and their family's lead healthier lives, including spending more time outside." The programs instituted by Disney have helped many to "take steps to improve their health."

Couch to 5K Plus is one of many ways Disney supports Cast Members along their wellness journey, and in 2013 even more events and races have been added to help Cast Members stay fit and reach their goals.
