Balestrieri employees and their family members participated in the Elkhorn Recreation Department’s 5th Annual Reindeer Run on December 2nd, 2017. The theme was Get Groovy!
Featured at the event was a Strut Your Mutt, a 5k Run/Walk, and a Kids’ 100 yard Grinch Sprint. Dogs in the Strut Your Mutt received a groovy bandana and treat. In the Grinch Sprint, children had a chance to chase after the actual Grinch.
This year, Balestrieri was a Bronze-level sponsor of the event. We enjoy sponsoring the Reindeer Run because the proceeds go towards the local Parks & Recreation Department programs that serve several of our employees’ children.
“Another wonderful Reindeer Run this year! The weather was beautiful. My favorite part is that my family can all participate together and we have a blast. The different themes every year make it even more exciting. After the race, drinks and snacks were provided and everyone stuck around for the other contests and announcement of winners,” remarked Balestrieri HR Manager Nicole Cervantes.
Of our several participants in the 5k, two ended up placing in their age brackets. Congratulations to Emma Williams, daughter of Nicole Cervantes, who won 2nd place in her division with a time of 32:07:63 and Balestrieri Project Superintendent Alex Quijano who took 3rd in his division with a time of 25:25:33!
