The Healthy 100 Central Florida Executive Challenge is dedicated to the memory of Gary Sain. As President and CEO of Visit Orlando, Gary made Orlando one of the top travel destinations in the world. Under his guidance, Orlando became the first destination in the country to welcome 50 million visitors in a year, making it the top travel spot in the U.S. and one of the most visited places in the world.
Gary lived every day with passion and enthusiasm and credited his active lifestyle with giving him the energy to tackle a busy career. He believed in helping his 175 staff members pursue active, healthy lifestyles and launched initiatives to encourage healthy habits.
A kind, passionate man who lived every day to the fullest, Gary Sain died suddenly on May 4, 2012, at the age of 61. In December 2011, we talked with Gary about his passion for a healthy lifestyle and his belief that every business and civic leader has an obligation to their business and to their employees to lead by example while encouraging their employees to pursue wellness.
Now it’s your turn to demonstrate your commitment to health and wellness. Take the Central Florida Executive Challenge by improving your diet and committing to a regular program of exercise.
