The 'Over the Hump' race series [is] a great opportunity to introduce our brand to a local audience, while providing support to our employees who choose to be a part of the Connect Your Home Wellness Program.
Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
As a silver sponsor of Orange County’s “Over The Hump” mountain bike race series, Connect Your Home will be supporting a local mountain biking event on a weekly basis over the summer months. By participating as a sponsor in the 12 race series, Connect Your Home will continue to encourage involvement in its internal Wellness Program by providing discounted entry fees for employees that choose to participate. The “Over The Hump” racing series began in 2009 in Orange County, California and has grown with up to 600 racers of all different skill levels and ages who compete each week for three months.
Connect Your Home completed its internal Wellness Program Challenge in February, where it awarded three employees who decreased their BMI the most with cash prizes. Even though the program already ended, Connect Your Home continues to bring healthy lifestyle tips and opportunities to all of its employees. Connect Your Home previously sponsored and participated in the Knott’s Berry Farm Annual 5K Coaster Run back in March. At least five employees are expected to join the first couple of “Over The Hump” races, with the intent of encouraging more to join.
“As an avid mountain biker myself, I thought that the Over the Hump race series would be a great opportunity to introduce our brand to a local audience, while providing support to our employees who choose to be a part of the Connect Your Home Wellness Program,” said Vice President of Marketing, Michael Ryan Grier. “I am looking forward to getting back on the bike with my peers in a fun and challenging experience outside of the office.”
The first race will take place on May 22nd and the last race of the series will be held on August 28th. Each race is on a Tuesday evening every week for 12 weeks.
