ST. PETERSBURG, FL – The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition has selected Joe Troubetaris, a Corporate Fitness Works Wellness Coordinator at CSX Transportation’s corporate health and wellness center in Huntington, WV, to receive a 2016 President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition Community Leadership Award. The award is given annually to individuals or organizations who improve the lives of others within their community by providing or enhancing opportunities to engage in sports, physical activities, fitness, and nutrition-related programs.
Corporate Fitness Works’ vision is to lead a health revolution that moves everybody and Joe is leading the charge with his work to support CSX and the Huntington community. Having been diagnosed with diabetes at age 12, Joe brings an incredible desire to help connect, strengthen, and empower his community to live a healthier, happier life. Joe never hesitates to support CSX community service events that incorporate physical activity such as 4 Summer Spikes, Family Fish & Fun Day, Military Appreciation Day, Service Day and Fall Awareness Day.
“Joe Troubetaris has worked to consistently promote opportunities for individuals to lead healthy lifestyles through physical activity and/or healthy nutrition,” says Shellie Pfohl, Executive Director of the Office of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition. “Because of Joe’s efforts and contributions, his community can embrace a more active lifestyle. Together, we are all working to make our nation a healthier one by helping individuals across the nation live vibrant, vivacious, and productive lives.”
Joe’s supervisor has lightheartedly deemed him the honorary mayor of Huntington, WV. “Truth be told, Joe has done so much to improve the lives in Huntington that he truly is an inspiration and well respected leader within his community, CSX and throughout our Corporate Fitness Works Team.”
This year, in honor of its 60th Anniversary, the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition presented the Community Leadership Award to 60 recipients across the country for making sports, physical activity, fitness, and nutrition-related programs available in their communities.
