On the morning of April 1st Austin Mayor Steve Adler, Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt, ATC’s CEO Amber Gunst, Humana’s Texas VP Brock Purslow, Amy Foster Texas Beef Council’s Nutrition Coordinator, and HealthCode’s ED Steve Amos; gathered at City Hall to kick off HealthCode’s 6th annual Million Mile Month; a global challenge to engage people to be active and healthy, while supporting more connected communities. Watch the CBS Austin video on HealthCode’s blog. We want to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to the Austin tech community’s participation.
By the end of April over 13,600 people from 70+ “states” from around the globe had accomplished 1.2 million miles of activity. Way to go!!!

There were many amazing stories, but one of the coolest involved ATC’s member Humana. Humana has its own innovative GO365 wellness program AND they shared the Million Mile Month with their customers.
As a result, nine of Humana’s member organizations were included in the top 100 global organizations! Accomplishing over 30,000 miles of activity and burning 1.3 million calories.
Way to go Humana and your amazing members!
Plus, their client the Texas Association of School Business Officials, plans to feature the Million Mile Month and their experience in an article that will go to 850 school districts across the state. How cool is that!
“Humana is dedicated to influencing all communities positively in our communal goal of becoming healthy, happy, and genuinely connected in every aspect of life. We were thrilled to see that so many of our corporate customers, especially in the thriving tech community, not only signed up, but truly engaged their employees in the HealthCode’s worthwhile programming. We hope that through this, employees not only continue a healthy lifestyle, but can attest to the holistic benefits of working in the Austin tech scene,” said Humana’s Brock Purslow.
Congratulations to other Austin Technology Council participating organizations who made the leader board: Humana, Retail Me Not, woom bikes, City of Austin, and Texas Association of School Boards.
