Healthy Living

In an effort to support healthy living, the Decore-ative Specialties’ Human Resources Department recently provided free pedometers to any employee desiring to track their “number of steps” walked each day. For those choosing to participate, the goal is to walk 10,000 steps per day (approximately 5 miles)! The Firecracker 5k Walk/Run provided several employees with the opportunity to start out their healthy living initiative with a “bang!”
