For three months from August through October of 2020, Wunderlich-Malec employees participated in a company-wide walk/run event. As a group, we virtually journeyed to each of our 37 locations throughout the US – starting at our Winslow, ME location, down the eastern seaboard, through the South, Midwest, and Southwest, then up the West coast to finish at our Portland OR location!
Participants could walk or run, then enter their miles in the daily logbook. Cumulatively, we added up everyone’s miles and tracked it on our “locations” map. Each walk or run had to be a minimum of 20 minutes or more of continuous, focused effort to count as an entry – the total miles walked/run was 9,478 with 20% of our employees participating.
During the three months, participants received a weekly report with updated individual and Business Unit mileage totals with a map tracking progress. Friendly rivalries between Business Units emerged vying for the highest mileage for their group, individuals felt the competitive spirit too with some going for the highest individual mileage. In the end, everyone enjoyed being part of an event that promoted fitness and had the common goal of “visiting” each of our company locations.
Great job WM employees – It was a fun three months and we can’t wait to do it again next year!
