“Miles with a Mission” serves employees and their community

At the height of the pandemic, our Run-Walk-Volunteer (R-W-V) Committee, created to help promote a healthy lifestyle for employees, was forced to reevaluate its mission. Determined to find a way to continue promoting healthy habits, the R-W-V committee established Miles with a Mission.

Miles with a Mission pairs employee wellness with philanthropic reward by encouraging employees to participate in a virtual 5K on their own time, at their own pace, either walking running, walking, hiking, and in the winter months, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. In exchange, each month the committee selects a non-profit organization to support and sends them a donation on behalf of everyone who participates (including an employee’s plus-one) in the virtual event.

The R-W-V committee was thrilled to donate a total of $13,730 to 12 non-profits in 2022. So far this year, we are on track to beat that number with the following results to-date:

The Miles with a Mission program aligns perfectly with our company goal of promoting the health and wellbeing of our employees. By creating and/or sponsoring fitness opportunities and encouraging and incentivizing participation, we are able to meet this goal one 5K at a time.
