GLENDALE, ARIZONA – Community Health Charities of Arizona (CHC-AZ) is pleased to award the annual Champions in Health Award to the Phoenix Coyotes organization.

Selected annually, the Champions in Health award program honors a local business in Arizona that demonstrates and promotes a consistent commitment to providing a healthy workplace within their company, as well as in the community through support of our member agencies. Bradley Thornton, President & CEO, UMEC, an EMCOR Company and 2010 Champion In Health recipient, presented the award to Julie Atherton, Vice President of Human Resources for Phoenix Coyotes , on the bench during the Coyotes March 24th game. “Julie and the entire staff go out of their way to support our work in the community and to encourage the employees to be active in supporting good health in Arizona. The Coyotes continue to keep the bar set very high for others and Community Health Charities of Arizona could not be happier to have them as a partner in success.”

In addition to encouraging a healthy and safe work environment, the Phoenix Coyotes management invites CHC-AZ member health charities to take part in the annual employee campaign kick-off and to share their stories, as well as prevention and health-related information for employees in the workplace.
