It is event season at SMP! As we enter spring time, we have a full line up of endurance events on the schedule through the fall. These events offer much more than a chance to be active. It is an opportunity for us to mingle with and jog beside colleagues outside of the office and with those that we may not work with closely. Furthermore, SMP’s involvement in the community through event sponsorship and participation allows us to show a unique side of our culture. In addition to striving for excellence in the industry, SMP fosters total wellbeing among employees through a comprehensive wellness program, with physical fitness being one facet of the program.
SMP endurance events provide enough diversity to appeal to every athlete; from the non-athlete to the fierce competitor. This past weekend SMP was the title sponsor of the River Challenge in Rochester, NY. This event featured a run, bike, paddle triathlon or a run, bike, run duathlon. Despite the brisk morning temperatures, SMP’s athletes put forth strong and undeterred performances with both individual and team participants. Two of our athletes completed The River Challenge as their first solo multisport race, a great accomplishment! With additional employees on site to cheer their colleagues along, the River Challenge provided fresh air, exercise and an opportunity to build camaraderie; the prefect recipe for a feel good experience!
