Humana Chairman and CEO Mike McCallister joined President Bill Clinton and PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem at a recent press conference in New York to discuss the new direction that the Humana Challenge will take in January 2012. The former Bob Hope Classic is still a premier PGA TOUR event, but in addition to the new name, it will have a new focus on health and well-being and showcase the benefits of living healthier lives.
Tournament week, Jan. 16-22, will feature a national conference on health and well-being, highlighted by a keynote address from President Clinton. The tournament provides a unique opportunity to immerse people of all ages in a variety of innovative and fun events around the theme of lifelong well-being, which makes it a perfect fit for the sponsors, Humana and The William J. Clinton Foundation. Humana and the Clinton Foundation understand the challenges we all face as we strive to live healthier, happier lives and demonstrate a commitment to helping us do just that through initiatives such as the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, multi-generational playgrounds, programs that reward healthier behaviors, a bike-sharing program and Humana Games for Health.
