Posted on Thursday June 6, 2019
Defence Construction Canada (DCC) won a trophy (above right inset) for their international success with the Virgin Pulse Global Challenge. The Virgin Pulse Global Challenge is a wellness challenge where teams of seven compete against other teams around the world, virtually travelling the globe by foot in order to improve health and well-being. In 2018, Defence Construction Canada had over 500 of its employees participate in the 100-day journey. That equalled 810 million steps, more than 518,000 kilometres, or 14,909 steps per day per person. For this, DCC won the trophy for the most active organization in the world in the construction sector. In October 2018, Virgin Pulse presented the trophy to Jim Paul, President and CEO of Defence Construction Canada in Ottawa, highlighting some of the company’s successes. The team celebrated their win in front of the Garrison Petawawa Military Museums on May 21. This year’s Challenge kicked off on May 22, 2019, and ends 100 days later, on August 29, 2019.
