On Saturday, April 14, Team Hilldrup laced up our sneakers, did a quick stretch and participated in the 9th Annual Stafford Hospital 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Stafford Hospital Foundation.
Team Hilldrup, composed of employees and their friends and family, totaled 31 participants and took home the Corporate Challenge Award – presented to the company with the highest turnout. Altogether, more than 310 runners and walkers came out to support the race.
Besides our impressive participation numbers, two of our employees placed in the race as well. Congratulations to Bethany Herb, Client Services Specialist, for placing 2nd in her age group and Christian Trout, Virtual Sales Estimator, for placing 1st in his age group. Way to go team!
As a result of the participants, sponsors and donors, the Stafford 5K Run/Walk raised over $17,200.
Thank you to all participants and the outstanding volunteers who made this event a success; we look forward to doing it all again next year!

Whether an avid runner or simply wanting to participate with coworkers, Team Hilldrup’s vision for the race was simple, Be your best, PERIOD.
