SalesPad Takes Part in Fifth Third River Bank Run

 In Company Culture, Events

This past weekend we had a number of SalesPad employees take part in the 40th Annual Fifth Third River Bank Run in Grand Rapids, MI.

The Fifth Third River Bank Run gives participants the option of a 25k-, 10k- or 5k race. We had individuals take part in all three categories (#SPMoves), as well as doing a 5k dance/walk (#SPGrooves). Those who took part in the dance/walk got their groove on while still completing the 5k Walk. The weather ended up being perfect running weather for West Michigan. We didn’t think we could wake our team up at 6 a.m. on a Saturday morning to run but here is proof that we did.

Those who took part on #SPGrooves, 5k dance/walk team, enjoyed moving and grooving through the streets of Grand Rapids, and their only complaint was the music wasn’t loud enough. Next year, they plan to take a bigger speaker and make an even bigger impression with their dance moves.

We were happy to have a lot of first time participants at this year’s race, as well as excited for our repeat participants who came back to race. Congrats to the running rock stars Carina, Matt, Kandace, Avery, Tom, Carlos, and Kreg who got their PR’s at the race.  Living in Beer City USA means we stay hydrated and need to stay active, so keep an eye out for our participation in future running adventures like this one.
