TekPartners participates in the 2011 Mercedes Benz Corporate Run for the 5th year in a row! It was a huge success…

…and we had an awesome turnout of TekPartners employees and some clients met us there too! The event was on Thursday, March 24th at 6:45pm at Huizenga Plaza in DowntownFort Lauderdale, FL. They also host events in Miami and West Palm Beach. We had about 40 people in our group and our top 4 women runners WON a medal for have the fastest combined times in our category! Go team! This is always a big event with a huge turnout, benefitting the American Red Cross. We have a blast every year, while getting a good workout too and giving back to the community.

This is an event for runners and walkers of all abilities. We offer educational materials and training programs for the Corporate Run and throughout the year to help people achieve lifetime fitness goals and develop a healthy lifestyle. The event boosts individual and corporate morale. Beginners can “ease into exercise” with friends, and carry with them the desire to continue walking and running to improve overall health. Competitive runners have the opportunity to shine amongst their co-workers and perhaps lead a corporate team to victory! The purpose of the Corporate Run is to promote running and walking as a means to a fit, healthy lifestyle for people from all walks of corporate life. Media Sponsors help us foster community interest in the benefits of fitness and camaraderie in the workplace, and encourage public participation throughout a diverse community. A healthy employee makes a healthy company!
