KeeleyLife: 2021 In Review
2021 was a year full of health and wellness at Keeley Companies! KeeleyLife, our robust health & wellness program, is dedicated to helping Keeley'ns be the best version of themselves through resources, education, and challenges focused on mental health, financial education, nutritional habits, and physical fitness.
In 2021, we hosted our first annual KeeleyLife Kickball Tournament benefitting Girls on the Run. Seven teams from Keeley Companies and ADB Companies battled it out for unlimited bragging rights and the coveted trophy. Special shoutout to One Kick Wonders from Keeley Construction for being named the champions! This fun-filled event was held at Kirkwood Park, with plenty of food catered by Go Gyro Go and in true KeeleyLife fashion, health-conscious drinks. We are so grateful for the 120 amazing Keeley'ns and A-Team members who attended to play and cheer on our teams while raising $3,000! Laughter filled the fields during each game, and it was amazing to see our people come together. Girls on the Run is an organization that strengthens the confidence of young women in a society that discourages them. The organization leads young girls to unleash their potential and become empowered women. KeeleyLife and #KeeleyCares were honored to work with such an amazing organization! We had so much fun focusing on health, mindfulness, and supporting Girls on the Run, and we can’t wait for next year!
KeeleyLife’s mission is to sustain a culture of health and well-being for all Keeley’ns and their families. We launched KeeleyLife podcast this year, and each episode is focused around four pillars: Health, Eating, Activity, and Learning. Every month we hear from Keeley’ns and subject matter experts on various topics such as planning for retirement, making fitness fit into your life, and how mental health affects your physical health. We encourage our people to use this podcast as a resource to become a better version of themselves! We can’t wait to hear from more experts to help advance our Keeley’ns in their health and wellness journey in 2022! Click here to listen to the podcast.
KeeleyLife sponsors ongoing challenges and competitions to encourage all Keeley’ns to focus on their overall health and well-being. This summer we hosted our Annual Step-Up Challenge! This month-long challenge consisted of teams of five Keeley'ns who competed for weekly and grand prizes and, of course, got active in the process! We had 280 team members form 57 teams and compete in our annual Step-Up Competition. As a group, we took 69,610,426 total steps! Thank you to everyone who participated, and we can’t wait to see what next year brings!
This fall, KeeleyLife and #KeeleyCares are teamed up to help Keeley’ns get moving while making a difference in our community during our first annual 100 Mile Challenge. We had an incredible showing for the first year of this challenge. By walking 100 miles and donating $100, and Keeley’ns earned incredible swag while supporting JDRF, St. Patrick Center, Mighty Oaks Heart Foundation, and Autism Speaks. Over 50 Keeley’ns aimed to hit the goal of walking 100 miles or more and together, we raised over $5,000 for charity!
2022 is going to be an amazing year! We are excited to enhance our health & wellness resources, providing even more benefits to our Keeley’ns and their families.
