This past Saturday, nearly 100 AREVA employees participated in the National Marathon that took place on the streets of the nation’s capitol. Employees from AREVA locations throughout the United States joined together to run in the Marathon, Half-Marathon, and Half-Marathon team relay event with over 9,000 other runners in Washington, D.C.
This was a great opportunity to see AREVA employees and their families out running, volunteering, and cheering.
AREVA was a sponsor of the event as part of its Athlenergy program. In addition to encouraging team spirit and stressing the importance of physical fitness, AREVA is running for a cause.
AREVA’s sponsorship program will donate about one dollar for every mile run by each employee to an organization called Reach Out and Read. This non-profit promotes early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.
We want to congratulate all of this year’s participants and encourage you to energize the athlete in you.
