UniGroup recently participated in the 7th Annual 10K a Day event to raise funds for United Way, an organization that helps people and communities across the U.S. We’re pleased to report that there was a great deal of enthusiastic participation from employees, including our staff at Dependable Relo’ headquarters in Round Rock, Texas. Teams from 19 UniGroup agency locations logged more than 158 million steps and raised more than $10,000 for United Way organizations across the country.
Dependable Relo is proud that we had so many passionate individuals from our company who were excited and willing to participate. In total, we had 3 teams and 55 participants, more than any other agent. What makes us even prouder is that this is Dependable Relo’s second consecutive year winning this event.
The team members from Dependable Relo logged 46,769,494 steps over the 12 week period. This adds up to a staggering 23,300+ miles! To keep our teams motivated and inspired, we had a biweekly drawing to give away 6 FitBits to members of the team who consistently achieved over 10,000 steps a day. And we certainly had many participants who went above and beyond these expectations. At the end of the challenge, we had 5 members who had exceeded 1,200,000 steps (or 600 miles) and 18 members who exceeded 1,000,000 steps (or over 500 miles) in total.
As the first place agency, Dependable Relo received a trophy recognizing us as “The Most Physically Fit Agency in the UniGroup System” for 2014. We would also like to thank the three hard-working team captains who encouraged everyone and kept them on track: Tanya Wilson, Valisha Woodhurst, and Sherri Brauer. It’s been wonderful to see how so many of our team members stepped up to help United Way continue doing its important, life-changing work.
