Yuri Knoop, shift supervisor and our LifeBeats Site Champion in Moerdijk, Netherlands, helped coordinate a charity event with some of his colleagues at LyondellBasell. 18 employees from the Catalloy plant participated in an event in which they spun for charity and raised money to support the local children's hospital. This is an amazing example of Living the LifeBeats Way and advancing what is possible in their community.
Prashant’s journey from obesity to marathon runner started like many others. His excess weight began to impact his life, “My drive to pursue healthy activities on a regular basis was lacking”, according to Chikane, customer service team lead at our Mumbai, India site. “I decided to monitor my food habits and develop an exercise regime that blended with my lifestyle.” In his two-year journey, Prashant has lost 18 kg (40 lb) and ran over 3700 km or 2300 miles! While maintaining his weight loss, he has completed 4 half marathons and 6-10k runs. This is a powerful testimony to the pursuit of excellence. Congratulations Prashant!
