They say runners get a natural high, but it gets even higher when you have a team of them with you 5 years in a row.
Yesterday, September 9th our Team BuzzBack of 13 participated for the 5th year in a row in the Annual Komen Race for the Cure in Central Park. A bit rainy and dreary this year, but that did not dampen our spirits one bit– all smiles and enthusiasm as we stood beside our client teams such as Pepsi and Pfizer, to walk on behalf of a breast cancer cure. I’m proud to say while we don’t have their size in absolute numbers, we do have more than a third of our NY office participating. Pretty amazing.
We started 5 years ago in support of one of our teammates suffering from Breast Cancer, and now we support a second person on our team in her journey against cancer. Side by side we walk and ran in the rain. Others designed and ordered our shirts. We sent her dinners when she was going through chemo to make it easy on her family.
Just one ounce of the spirit of engagement at BuzzBack. It’s what we bring to work each day, what we share with our clients, and how we work with our partners. It’s why we’ve been named one of the 100 Best Places to Work by Crain’s not one – but two years in a row. And we’re up as finalists for the WiRE Best Places to Work award this year, too.
I am so proud of this team, it’s a personal high. High 5’s all around.
