Racing into Summer

As the summer season approaches, we often long for the chance to get outside and enjoy the sights and weather of our cities. Here at McGladrey, we encourage our employees to stay active by promoting health and community involvement through various McGladrey sponsored races each year. In Chicago, we kicked off racing season with the Shamrock Shuffle in April, but that was just the start of many races to come! From the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to the Chase Corporate Challenge, you can often spot Team McGladrey running the streets of Chicago!

Race for the Cure
The Chicago Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure was held on Mother’s Day this year. This 5k/10k race has been at the end of September in years past, but nonetheless had a great turnout of people supporting the cause to find a cure for breast cancer. McGladrey had a team of several runners and walkers who got to enjoy the cool, but beautiful late spring weather and help raise awareness for this important cause.

On May 23, 2013, Team McGladrey participated in the Chase Corporate Challenge in Grant Park. Each year, this race is only open to runners who work at companies and firms in the surrounding area. Although chilly and windy that day, the 3.5 mile race was a huge hit! Our runners were welcomed at the finish line with an abundance of food, beverages, and camaraderie at the McGladrey tent. Congratulations to our top male finisher Alonzo Palomares and our top female finisher Michelle Stoffel!

Team McGladrey at Corporate Challenge

McGladrey was a proud sponsor of the Michael Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation Dash for Detection held on Chicago’s lakefront Saturday, June 1, 2013. The Team McGladrey participants ran or walked the 5K event and helped to raise over $200,000 to fund research for the early detection of pancreatic cancer. It was a fun event and for a great cause!
