Our staff participated in the National Business Challenge Relay for the 12th time this year. This event is held every October and every year, we look forward to it with the same, if not more enthusiasm.
We all know the benefits of exercise, and there are indeed many but this event provides a relaxing and social environment in which organisations can compete in other ways outside the strenuous business environment.
What makes the National Business relay great is that it is open to full-time employees of corporations, government departments, private companies or any other employment organisation where people work together. Each company may enter an unlimited number of teams and everyone is encouraged to participate. This type of event encourages teamwork and participation from people of all walks of life; everyone is equal on the track, from the CEO to the driver, competing for their company’s honour.
This year, we entered a total of 7 teams who competed in the two categories of walkers and runners, even though we came to compete, the main focus of the day was to have fun, and that’s exactly what we did. The Sabinet team didn’t disappoint with their team spirit.
This event is organised to promote company involvement and teamwork in the best spirit of competition. All participants are encouraged to wear their company regalia and rally non-competing co-workers to the race site to cheer their team to victory. Thank you to the Sabinet Cheerleaders who cheered our athletes on to the finish line and to everyone involved in making the day the huge success that it was! A special thanks to the sponsors, who even through this tough economic climate still sponsor events like these, thank you @Avis, @Sportsman’s Warehouse, @Athletics Gauteng North and @Magnolia Road Runners.
See you again next year!
