Who’s up for a jog?! On Thursday, June 21, local athletes will assemble at Auditorium Shores to participate in Win4Youth 2012, an annual event organized by Adecco Group aimed at generating donations for local charities and select foundations around the world. Austin participants will be competing against athletes in four other cities in an attempt to walk or run the most miles on that day and win a big donation for LifeWorks.
The Win4Youth initiative began in 2010 as a way for Adecco colleagues and clients to stay active while supporting youth charities. Last year, The Win4Youth program saw more than 20,500 participants in 63 countries log over 1.5 million kilometers. Every kilometer logged as part of Win4Youth earns youth charities dollars sponsored by Adecco. 30 Win4Youth athletic events in the U.S. have been scheduled to take place from April to September.
This year, in honor of the 2012 Olympic Games, Adecco Group North America has split the continent up into five teams that will be competing against one another to log the most miles jogged, biked or swam. On Thursday, Austin participants will take to the trail at Lady Bird Lake to out run athletes in Boston, Detroit, Tampa and Washington, DC. The North American portion of Win4Youth has been named Tri As One. Not only will participants be running to earn monies for local organizations but they will also collectively be running to accumulate dollars for several global foundations chosen by Adecco.
Clients or colleagues of Adecco Group interested in participating in Win4Youth can register for Thursday’s (June 21) run/walk here or at the start line the morning of the event. Runners will meet 8 am at Auditorium Shores (Downtown Austin by the 1st street bridge) where there will be a pre-event celebration prior to the start of the run.
LifeWorks would like to thank all runners taking part in this event and Adecco Group for encouraging a global community to do good for youth and families in need. Godspeed athletes! Your endurance inspires us all.
