Berlin, Vt. – Gov. Phil Scott, Health Commissioner Mark Levine, M.D., and Michael Feulner presented The University of Vermont Health Network - Central Vermont Medical Center (CVMC) with the Michael Feulner Award on Oct. 22.
The award is presented annually to the organization with the most participants in May’s Vermont Corporate Cup & State Agency Race. In 2018, 525 CVMC staff members participated. It is the third time CVMC has earned the distinction.
Accepting the award from Feulner himself was Anna Noonan, CVMC's president and chief operating officer, joined by CVMC staffers, leaders, walkers and runners to salute CVMC’s emphasis on workplace wellness.
Feulner, a native Vermonter and member of the Corporate Cup committee since its start in 1980, has been instrumental in making the race what it is today. Following his retirement, the award was named in his honor.
The Council’s Corporate Cup race takes place each May during Global Employee Health & Fitness Month, encouraging colleagues to walk and run together to improve health and fitness.
For the past four years, CVMC has earned the Governor’s Excellence in Worksite Wellness Award for efforts to support and promote employee health at the Corporate Cup and beyond. CVMC pays entrance fees for employees joining the race, maintains a one-mile walking path and staff gym on its main campus, and organizes a five-mile Fun Run/Walk event to support the Health Care Share, a collaborative farm-to-hospital public health program with the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps.
