Fun Run info August 23rd below
Are you up for a challenge? The 2014 MAD Run has one just for you...get your colleagues together for a 4 mile walk or run through the beautiful Hebron Valley on August 23rd. You'll help raise funds for a very worthy cause - the UVA Cancer Center's Breast Care Program - and your company could be awarded our inaugural Corporate Cup! The business or company that has the largest percentage of its workforce participating in the MAD Run will win this prestigious honor. Last year, Plow and Hearth had almost 10% of their workforce participating and they are challenging all of you to beat that. It doesn't matter how big or small your company is...we'll use the percentage of total employees so everyone has the same chance of winning. Just think of the bragging rights! You don't want to miss this opportunity!
