"It is great
to work for a company that cares about you, gives you incentives to care about
your own health, and creates a fun and competitive atmosphere to celebrate it
- Andrew LeSaicherre,
awesome because it provides the motivation for me to exercise and with four
kids at home my exercise time is not existent, so I utilize my lunch hour to
run. It means a lot to train for something and have it pay off in the end and
hopefully that motivation to train and exercise during lunch will continue
throughout the summer!”
- Riley Tracy, Director
of Tournament Administration
“We had a great
turn out and I think everyone had a good time. The weather was perfect for and
I am very excited to work on this again next year.”

Purchasing Coordinator and AJGA Wellness 5K Classic Race Director
