One activity employees could participate in was a 'Kick the Can' challenge, which drew 219 employees. It allowed people to reduce or eliminate sugary drinks from their diet by incorporating healthy options, like fruit-infused waters, and chart their progress. Regency provided employees with a Bobble infuser water bottle and set up fruit stations around the office where people could mix and match healthy concoctions.

This year's event was emceed by decorated USA Olympic gymnast and Jacksonville resident, Shannon Miller.
