CDPHP® Secures Lead Sponsorship of Workforce Team Challenge

Albany, NY (Vocus) January 26, 2010

The Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club (HMRRC) of Albany announced today that CDPHP® has signed on as the new lead sponsor of the Workforce Team Challenge for a three-year term. Billed as the largest annual road race between Utica and New York City, this year’s challenge will take place on Thursday, May 20, 2010 at the Empire State Plaza in Albany.

“CDPHP is excited to work with the HMRRC and serve as the new sponsor of the Workforce Team Challenge event,” said John D. Bennett, MD, president and CEO, CDPHP. “This event aligns with our goals as a community-based health and wellness company. We encourage other businesses, large and small, to join us for the biggest road race in the Capital Region and enjoy the many health benefits and camaraderie that embracing physical fitness can bring.”

The CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge is a 3.5-mile road race open to teams of employees from corporations, businesses, government agencies, educational institutions, not-for-profit corporations, and financial institutions. Last year’s event attracted upwards of 7,700 runners/walkers encompassing 432 participating organizations. Employers use the event as a platform to provide health and fitness opportunities in the workplace while promoting goodwill and teamwork among their employees. Runners, joggers, and walkers are invited to compete and all participants receive a complementary T-shirt and light refreshments following the race.

The event is organized by, and serves as the major fundraiser for, HMRRC, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was incorporated in 1971 and is one of the largest running clubs in the nation, with more than 2,000 members throughout the Capital Region. Since 1981, this fundraiser has helped to underwrite HMRRC’s many activities and services, including scholarships to college-bound high school seniors, grants for youth running programs, seminars and clinics for runners, 30 other local running events throughout the year, and a monthly running magazine, The Pacesetter.

“The Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club is delighted to partner with CDPHP to host the Workforce Team Challenge,” noted Pete Newkirk, the event’s director. “Our mission statements are uniquely aligned: Our club is dedicated to endorsing running and walking as part of a healthy lifestyle, while CDPHP is committed to promoting healthy lifestyles and has long been a strong community supporter.”

Each year, HMRRC selects a “charity of choice” and encourages sponsors and participants in the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge to add a contribution to their race fee. This year’s charity is the Boys & Girls Club of Albany.

“As the needs of our community grow, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany remains poised to answer the call of the youth who need us most. Thousands of children depend on us,” said Keyon L. Young, executive director, Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany. “We depend on the business and philanthropic communities to support our mission, and are delighted that CDPHP and HMRRC have chosen to help us enable and inspire our members to realize their full potential as productive and responsible citizens.”

Just in time for New Year’s Resolutions, Tara Meyer-Robson Announces a 40 Day Transformation Challenge Designed to Totally Transform Lives!

Just in time for New Year’s Resolutions, Tara Meyer-Robson Announces a 40 Day Transformation Challenge Designed to Totally Transform Lives!


Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) December 31, 2007

Just in time to allow people to truly succeed in their New Year’s resolutions, Tara Meyer-Robson, author of The Flow: 40 Days to Total Life Transformation and creator of The Flow System, announces the launch of her new 40 Day Transformation Challenge. Designed to help every person finally succeed in their goals for 2008, the Transformation Challenge truly breaks new ground with its revolutionary approach.

Whether an individual desires a better love life, more success and prosperity, better health and wellbeing, improved physical fitness, breaking negative habits, or any other personal goal or dream, the 40 Day Transformation Challenge will allow participants to have everything necessary to finally achieve the life of their dreams.

“There is no reason for anyone to feel like a failure or to not succeed in their personal goals in 2008. The Flow System helps people identify the real reason for their issues – which is always negative thoughts and beliefs – and then takes each person through a comprehensive, totally personalized process that assures that each individual will succeed in achieving their goals – whatever their goals are,” Tara Meyer-Robson says, “The Flow 40 Day Transformation Challenge provides all the tools necessary for anyone to succeed in any New Year’s resolutions they might have.”

As part of the 40 Day Transformation Challenge, participants will be guided by the ground-breaking Flow System, which features two revolutionary tests that will take each participant through the process of creating a completely individualized action plan that works for the way that each person thinks and learns new information. The first test is the ”Flow Factor Test,” which identifies in which of seven areas of life, or ”Stations,” the participant has negative underlying programming that is causing him or her repetitive patterns, difficulty, or disease. Based on the participant’s test results, he or she is directed to specific workbook sections designed to identify which beliefs are causing the issues, understand where they came from, and be given a specific ‘retuning statement’ to retune the participant’s mind and life into the life of his or her dreams.

The second test, called the ”Reality Type Test,” identifies how each participant learns new information in the easiest way. Using these test results coupled with the specific retuning statements chosen by the participant, he or she will choose four ”Reality Type” exercises to do for 40 days (called the ”4 for 40”), thus retuning the individual’s mind into the life that is desired – and breaking the negative habits, patterns, and issues that have been an ongoing problem, possibly for an entire lifetime.

“The 4 for 40 program is the cornerstone of the system because it allows people to custom-design an action plan that is not only suited to their particular issues, it is also designed to use their personal strengths to make life-transformation simple for the individual,” author Tara Meyer-Robson reveals, “After all, your mind doesn’t work the same way as anyone else’s, so shouldn’t your personal improvement program be designed in a way that works just for you?”

The result of this completely personalized system is that each participant will feel like there is a life, success, and wellness coach working with him or her to create a custom-designed program that truly works.

By signing up for the challenge on December 31st or January 1st, participants will be given access to not only the ground-breaking Flow System, but will also be given free online support, e-books, weekly motivational pod casts, and much more, allowing the perfect support environment to keep participants motivated to succeed. Further, the system makes everything so simple, participants will be able to do all of the exercises without disrupting their normal daily routine. Backed by years of research, this challenge and The Flow System is certain to help anyone succeed in making 2008 the life of their dreams!
