Cooper Electric associates had some good clean fun in a 5K Warrior Dash Obstacle event in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania to support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital charity. Warrior Dash participants conquered 12 world-class obstacles including bounding over fire and trudging through mud over a 5K distance. Cooper’s team raised $15,000 and the Warrior Dash PA group contributed $75,000 to the $11.4 million raised to date for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
“It’s such a wonderful cause and we were honored to be a part of it. To have the opportunity to help others while doing something fun and challenging with my peers was an amazing feeling,” said Tom Brady, Vice President of Sales at Cooper Electric.
The Warrior Dash is promoted as the world’s largest obstacle race series and is held on more than 30 challenging and rugged terrains across the world. Cooper Electric looks forward to returning in 2016 to offer another memorable event for both new and returning Warriors from the organization.
