It was an amazing scene in downtown Orlando as more than 18,000 runners and walkers lined Lake Eola to participate in the IOA Corporate 5K. The event was a true celebration of a 20-year effort to create healthy workplaces within Central Florida’s business and organizations. An all-time IOA Corporate 5k record was set as 720 teams and 260 CEO’s partook in the 3.1 mile course.
Sports have played a prevalent role this week at Veritas Recruiting Group. From a Spring Training game between the Braves and Marlins to the 2014 Rescue Run Corporate 5K all with the peak of March Madness busting brackets in the background.
This was the third consecutive Rescue Run Corporate 5K the VRG team has participated in. As a company whose ultimate goal seeks to help people, we couldn’t say no to an event that gives back to our community. The race benefits the Rescue Outreach Mission, Seminole County’s only homeless shelter by providing them with the profits the philanthropy raises.
Running for Boston
The Veritas family was running again this Friday, April 19th as they participated in the IOA Corporate 5K at downtown Orlando. Our team represented a small percentage of the 16,000+ runners and walkers who packed the Orlando streets to celebrate healthy living with co-workers, friends and family.
As a new company in the Central Florida region, the team at Veritas wanted to start getting involved in the community. As a group we thought, “What’s a great way to get involved, have some fun and get healthy?” Little did we know we wouldn’t have to look far. One of our neighbors in our own office building hosts and coordinates Seminole County’s only Corporate 5k charity event. So this past Thursday, March 29th, we decided to get involved and participated in the Rescue Run Corporate 5k held in our own backyard in Lake Mary.
