Some White House Marketing reps attended this year’s 5K run in support of bringing awareness to child abuse.
On March 3, 2018, White House Marketing sent some reps who volunteered to attend this year’s 5K run to support child abuse awareness. This Shamrock run is hosted by Kappa Delta Panhellenic Association in multiple cities across the United States. The San Bernardino run was the closest to our Corona headquarters. Some reps took their dogs. Some reps were very competitive. Others just got a shirt and stood by to cheer the others on.
Michael M., White House Marketing rep came in 50th out of several hundred. Michael said, “Next time, I’m shooting for top 25 next time. But, seriously, the 5K was a great team-building event for the office and also dedicated to a great cause. We all got to be a bit competitive with each other. But, more importantly, we got to do our part to help fight child abuse. I definitely had a really fun time and was glad to run for a charity.” Phillip, also a rep and former UFC fighter, was beat by a tenth of a second by his eight year old daughter. She stated, “In all actuality, I would have beat him by more. He was slowing me down.”
Proceeds from those who participated went to local shelters and child abuse centers. White House Marketing is certainly looking to make this charity event a part of the routine. Everything was very well-organized and everyone was so nice. It was a bit wet outside from all of the rain the day prior. But, it was very refreshing—literally and figuratively.
