DSV Health & Wellness: Lots of Fun at the Bubble Run!

Last month we published a story on a local blood drive as part of our Health & Wellness series. This month, our health ambassadors continued sharing inspiring and fun stories with us.

DSV Health & Wellness: Lots of Fun at the Bubble Run!

Kudos to our health ambassador, Sandy Metz, US Tender Group in our Dallas, Texas office, who inspired DSV employees to participate in a local 5K Bubble Run last weekend. Forty-two DSV employees signed up to participate in this event. Since 2013, more than one million people across the country have participated in this race.

My vision as Wellness Advocate is to encourage an active lifestyle outside of the office for our DSV Family. The 5K Bubble Run was a perfect fit to bring employees and family members of all ages together while also supporting a charity, Make-A-Wish Foundation. It allowed everyone an opportunity to get to know each other outside of the office while having fun. Go DSV! - Sandy Metz
