Corporate Teams

Corporate Teams

Our Corporate Teams give employees and staff from corporations, small businesses, and organizations the opportunity to help raise funds and domestic violence awareness for our Run DV Coalition. This initiative can also increase the health and well-being of employees. In 2005 a survey completed by the Corporate Alliance to End Partner Violence found that 21% of full-time employed adults were victims of domestic violence and 64% indicated their work performance was significantly impacted. Your contribution to this issue can make a huge difference within your company, and in your community.

Some of the benefits gained by participating in a Corporate Team include: increasing productivity, building up team morale, increasing healthy competition, and decreasing negative health issues related to being confined to an office or desk. As an organization we can help establish workplace policies, bringing education/ awareness, and initiatives for your corporation, that offer support to any employee who is facing domestic violence.

 

If your company chooses to collaborate with Team Run DV, there are 3 different levels of teams to chose from:

STRIDE CORPORATE TEAM (5 Runners)

PACE SETTER CORPORATE TEAM (6 to 10 Runners)

ELITE CORPORATE TEAM (11 + Runners )

 

Each team and runner can choose to run either the Chicago Marathon, Chicago Half Marathon, or 5K. Some of the benefits in creating a Corporate Team with us include: team runs, runs with happy hours, a weekly newsletter, team incentives, and fundraising events.

 

The team that raises the most funds will be honored with a Corporate Social Responsibility Award and a free workshop for employees on workplace policies to address domestic violence!
