As COVID-19 extends its stay during 2020, GCG shifted our annual 5k walk/run to an alternative event! This year, we held our very first “5k My Way,” where all participants completed the 5k on their own time. Between October 16th and October 25th, associates picked the date, location and time that worked best for their run/walk.
More runners and walkers participated in this year’s event than ever before! Whether it was at home, at the gym, around the neighborhood, or on a scenic trail, each individual ran/walked for a cause.
With 128 participants, GCG managed to raise over $6,000 for local food banks. As the pandemic continues to impact families around the world, food banks are working to meet the increased demand of meals. Supporting food banks helps provide equitable food access and reach communities disproportionately affected by the pandemic.
Although we wish we could run and walk together this year, we thank everyone that contributed for this important cause!
