Virtual 5k

It doesn’t matter if you’re super speedy, or if you’re more into a leisurely walk. The most important part is just showing up for your team and spending time with your coworkers (even if it’s virtual)! We’ll have tons of fun ways for you to connect with your office bunch, so that at the end of the week you’re amped up to 5k together! Run or walk a 5k between Saturday, October 10 – Thursday, October 15. Don’t forget to record and submit your time! Scorecards will be tallied after 9:30 p.m. on October 15.
