Colby Co. Hits The Pavement for its First Virtual Race

Employees and their families hit the ground running in order to earn money for a cause! In its inaugural debut, Colby Co. hosted a virtual race for their employees and families in order to get out, have fun, and give back to the community.

Participants had the opportunity to sign up for a 5k, 10k or 1k (kids) Virtual Run/Walk Race. For every participant who signed up, Colby Co. donated up to $200 to the employee’s favorite non-profit organization.In all, 58 employees and their family members signed up to race, and 187 miles were covered in this fun run! $3500 was donated to a variety of nonprofit organizations, including the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland, Cooking For Community, Preble Street, and Maine Needs all on behalf of Colby Co.. Winners of the virtual races also earned a gift card to Fleet Feet. Congratulations, Colby Co. Runners!
