Endeavor's Staff Members Run for Health, Participate in Half Marathon

Endeavor, a premier provider of outsourced professional services, has given back to the local and national communities via several projects and charity drives over the years. It has also promoted many sporting events in the hope that it will encourage communities to seek new challenges and lead healthier lifestyles.

In its most recent endeavor, the provider of outsourced services sought to promote the sport of running and attract new runners. The company set the example by sponsoring its staff members to participate in this year’s Publix Georgia half marathon.

All nine sponsored staff members completed the race, a 13.1-mile course that began at the Centennial Olympic Park in the heart of downtown Atlanta. This appears to be the fourth year that Endeavor has sponsored its staff for the half marathon as part of company health initiative.

Endeavor sponsored its staff by providing training support, paying their entry fees and equipping each participant with an Endeavor racing jersey. It used its partnerships with several not-for-profit organizations and their fund-raising activities to promote the event.

Jacki Kirsch, who participated in the race and served as the organizer and chief motivator for the Endeavor team, said, “The hard work pays off when you finally cross that finish line.”

Over 16,000 runners and tens of thousands more total participants passed through downtown Atlanta and ran through several historic districts and scenic neighborhoods. Endeavor used its partnerships with several not-for-profit organizations and their fundraising activities to help promote the event.

During the 16 weeks preceding the race, the company tracked the weekly training mileage for each of member of the team. It was found that the team had logged in over 2,000 training miles while preparing for the race.

In its previous efforts, Endeavor has assisted in building homes in the Atlanta area, three previous food drives for the ACFB, a toy drive for MUST Ministries, Haiti earthquake relief, holiday letters and cards to U.S. military personnel serving overseas, and many other such projects.
