EVENT BRINGS AREA BUSINESSES AND EMPLOYEES TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE CAMARADERIE AND LIVING A HEALTHY, ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
ST. LOUIS – Aug. 31, 2017 – Over 180 St. Louis area businesses and 4,000 participants will take part in the second annual Biz Dash 5K tonight at Ballpark Village. The biggest end-of-the-summer office party promotes health and wellness in the workplace while building team camaraderie and an evening out after work. Produced by the St. Louis Sports Commission, the event doubled the number of participants (from 2016) and its footprint outside Ballpark Village.
“We are really excited about the growth of the Biz Dash,” said Sports Commission President Frank Viverito. “It’s a great wellness, team building event and an opportunity for all of us to have a great time while celebrating our community.”
The evening features the 5K race, Dance Floor Riot’s performance on the Missouri Lottery stage in the World Wide Technology Team Village, tailgating games and activities during the post-race party, and much more.
Industry category winners along with the overall male and female winners will receive awards – as will the top finishers of the HBM Holdings CEO Challenge. Company creativity will be showcased in the t-shirt design contest awarding best design, humor and most creative.
The second-year event sold out of company hospitality tents. Participants who do not have a tent or catered hospitality will be able to purchase food and beverages in the World Wide Technology Team Village.
