The Archer Group held its 3rd annual Couch to 5k program on May 19, 2012, at the Riverfront in Wilmington, Delaware. Each year, our employees and their loved ones gather to run the 5k and have some fun, all in support of a local charity organization. This year, the proceeds will help support the Wilmington chapter of Girls on the Run®.
Thirty-one runners, including more than half of the Archer staff, showed up in their specially designed Couch to 5k T-shirts on race day. “We are extremely proud of our employees’ participation in our annual Couch to 5k program this year and all years before this,” said Todd Miller, Archer Group Managing Partner. “To see the team step away from their work, train, and accomplish this major milestone together has become a huge highlight for us each year.”
This year was even more special since it benefits the Wilmington Chapter of Girls on the Run, a cause with close ties to The Archer Group. Original Archer Founder, Patrick Callahan, helped launch the organization in 2005. Through this program, girls aged 8 to 13 years train for a 3.1-mile running event and learn the skills necessary for positive emotional, social, spiritual, and physical development.
“We’re pleased that the timing worked out perfectly this year and we were able to be involved with Girls on the Run,” Miller said.
