Mason Corporate Challenge 5k walk/run


What is the Mason Corporate Challenge?

The Mason Corporate Challenge is a 5k walk/run designed to engage the Mason corporate community in a city-wide competition, support employee involvement in health and wellness activities, and give back by donating proceeds to select charities. Each company will form a team comprised of employees and their families to compete.

The City of Mason and the Mason Community Center are committed to cultivating a culture of wellness for the companies, citizens and visitors to the community. The Mason Corporate Challenge is a unique opportunity to bring Mason portfolio companies and their employees together, foster healthy activities and support talent recruitment.

In 2015, Russ Walker, the president and CEO of L-3, reached out to the Mason Economic Development office and outlined a vision for a wellness event that would bring the Mason corporate community together in a fun, competitive way. Russ had been part of a corporate challenge in a previous city and believed the initiative would work well in Mason. He also wanted a charitable component, and the idea was launched to bring the businesses of Mason together in a Mason Corporate Challenge.
