The team is meant for anyone who likes to race - running, cycling, triathlons, obstacle courses, etc. People can put an event they are interested in on the calendar and then we see how many people want to do it and meet up to race together. Yesterday was our first official Piper sponsored event - the Corporate 5k. Since the race was being hosted by FIT Aviation (a big Piper customer) and benefited United Way (Piper's chosen philanthropy), I asked our Marketing Team if they would sponsor us, and they did! They gave $10 off the registration fee for every employee who signed up and we ended up with 22 employees and 7 family members registered for our team!
The Corporate 5k gives team awards for largest team, fastest team, etc. This was our first year at the race and thanks to a couple of guys who did really well, we won fastest team for our division!
