Mackay Marina Run 20133/06/2013
Over 70 Dowdens Group employees, friends, family members and players from the Mackay Cutters Rugby League team participated in the Clarion Corporate Challenge at this year's BMA Mackay Marina Run.
Dowdens Pumping and Water Treatment took on a major sponsorship role for the event this year, while the Dowdens Group continued as major sponsor of the 8km run. Dowdens Group General Manager, Steve Dowden, recognises that the event offers his staff and their families an opportunity to socialise, whilst promoting a healthy lifestyle and participating in this increasingly popular community event.
"With three of the four Dowdens Group entities based in Mackay (MSS Powered Equipment, McGinns and Dowdens Pumping & Water Treatment) it is important to all of us within the Dowdens Group that we are active in the community, and help to promote healthy living to both our staff and their friends and families" Steve said.
"At the core of the Dowdens Group values, we are proud to promote a lifestyle balance to all of our employees. The BMA Mackay Marina Run is a fantastic opportunity for us to inspire our staff to embrace this healthy lifestyle balance wholeheartedly. It was great to once again see many of our staff and their families so keen to participate!"
The Dowdens Group had eight teams of nine people running (and walking!) in the event this year, and the day was capped off with a fun BBQ at the finish line!
