The men’s championship round was fast paced. Evan Armstrong (1st – NRG) had the top score of all time, sinking 13 baskets and scoring 32 points. Kevin Cahillane (2nd - MRM/McCann) came in 2nd with Abdel Nafady (3rd - Covance) closing in at 3rd place. A good time was had by all.

Health and Wellness Week, May 13 - 17, 2019
In honor of Global Employee Health and Fitness month, Boston Properties-Carnegie Center hosted a Health and Wellness week from Monday, May 13th to Friday, May 17th. The week included ten educational and interactive events starting on Monday, May 13 and a Health Fair on Thursday, May 16, from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at 506 Carnegie Center. Eighteen vendors and health related organizations were involved and we had a large employee attendance. Basic medical screenings, preventative medicine information, giveaways, prizes and raffles were available for all attendees.
Our goal for this Health Fair was to bring local health and wellness awareness to our Carnegie Center tenants and their employees. Activites throughout the week included Teaching Kitchen seminars by Eurest, CPR/AED Certifications led by the American Heart Association, Krav Maga Self Defense Demonstrations led by Master Israel, a Wine and Yoga class led by Jennefit's Joanna Steere and many more. All in all, it was a successful week and attendees gained health and wellness education and awareness.
Road Diet and Bike Share Program
Carnegie Center Drive was put on a "road diet." As illustrated in the video, a road diet is when the number of lanes traveling in each direction is reduced from two to one and we create a center left turn lane and bike lanes on the road.
This project was completed to enhance safety within the office park. Studies have shown that road diets result in slightly slower vehicular speeds and a reduction of accidents. The addition of the bike lanes will also promote the use of the soon to be arriving Carnegie Center bike share program.
In conjunction, Boston Properties launched a new bike share amenity available to Carnegie Center tenants and their employees; To sign up for a bike rental, download the Zagster app on your phone and choose Carnegie Center as your location.
