What started as a gloomy, rain-bound day turned out to be picture-perfect weather for us to Race for Kids, and raise support for Boys and Girls Club’s after school programs.

Returning to participate in this awesome event for our second consecutive year, we aimed to surpass our 3rd place finish from 2013. This year though, our fellow corporate challengers brought their A-game. The six events posed a fun challenge to our team, but one wrong turn cost us a top placement in the standings. Even though Radii placed 8th overall, we were honoured to win the Good Life Fitness award for “The Most Use of Twitter and Social Media” during the event!
