It may not be their ‘core business’ but the team at AFS & Associates Chartered Accountants, Venture Financial Advisors and Endeavor Finance take their participation in the Bendigo Bank Fun Run very seriously, and for good reason.
In past events, this combined team has dominated the Bendigo CBD course winning the Channel 9 Corporate Cup over the previous four Fun Runs and they continue to show strength as the 2017 event approaches.
AFS & Associates’ Chief Executive Officer, Kate Mannix sees the Fun Run as a great chance to involve employees in a healthy, team building exercise, and it also allows them to engage family and friends in a way their business would not otherwise be able to do.
“The event is open to all ages and abilities which is great for involving both the team and their families,” Kate said.
“It’s not often you get to see families join in with business activities, so it has been a really good opportunity that everyone enjoys,” Kate said.
Come Fun Run day, this year on Sunday 5 November, you will see the swarm of green and blue participants throughout the crowds which gives the business another highly worthwhile reason to get involved.
“It’s quite impressive to see our AFS/Venture/Endeavor logos spilled out through the crowds of the Fun Run as they make their way around the course,” Kate said.
It’s not difficult to see the benefit in having a large team – aside from the invaluable Channel 9 Corporate Cup award at the end – the bigger the team the greater the impact for your brand.
As a previous board member of Bendigo Health, Graeme Stewart, Senior Partner at AFS & Associates is proud to be supporting the hospital’s largest fundraiser and agrees it’s a fantastic community event for them to be involved in.
“This is a great, healthy way to socialise with the team and to be supporting the hospital as well makes it all the better,” Graeme noted.
