Parker, Smith & Feek hosts third annual Employee Olympics

Last Friday saw Parker, Smith & Feek host the third annual Employee Olympics. Fifty-five employees participated in our program designed for fitness, fun, and teamwork. Events included a 5K run, 3K walk, hoops, and a number of games that required just a bit more luck than actual skill—such as the mouse pad discus throw, pool noodle javelin throw, and the ever-popular game of ladder golf.

Medals—gold, silver, and bronze—were awarded to individuals in each event, as well as to the overall top three teams. Todd Syvrud of our Benefits department, who is currently on a tour of duty with the US Army, didn’t want to miss out on the fun. He completed the 3K walk in on-base while decked out in his 100-pound combat dress and gear. His incredible 79-foot mouse pad discus throw not only earned him a gold medal (it’s in the mail, Todd), but also led his team to a silver medal.

The annual Olympics are a part of our Workplace Wellness program, Your Choice, Your Future. Parker, Smith & Feek is committed to supporting and encouraging positive, healthy choices for all employees. Our Olympic tradition gives us an opportunity to take a little time to compete and play together.
