U.S. Engineering Teams Complete a Virtual 5K

May 15, 2020

U.S. Engineering

The way we go about our days has certainly changed over the past couple months, but that doesn’t need to keep us from staying active. Big group gatherings have been cancelled, but we can all keep moving together… a distance.

In that spirit, team members all across the U.S. Engineering family of companies recently participated in a virtual 5K. On May 2, they and their families walked, ran or biked at least 3.1 miles, documenting their journey by app. Many completed the activity on behalf of a charity.

Thank you to all U.S. Engineering team members across the country who joined us! Read on for results and photos.
