Skaneateles, NY (June 19, 2013) – The Corporate Challenge isn’t the only community event where you will see members of the Victory Sports Medicine team. Employees frequently engage in activities that they also encourage their patients to take part in, such as the Skinnyman Triathlon in Skaneateles and the Mountain Goat Run.
Dr. Marc Pietropaoli, owner of Victory Sports Medicine, says that “as the leading Sports Medicine & Orthopedics practice in Central New York, it is important for us to set the example for patients when it comes to health, wellness and injury prevention.”
The Corporate Challenge is a great way for Victory Sports employees to work together towards team-building, camaraderie, and feeling a sense of accomplishment. This year they had double the amount of entrants with 15 participants and look forward to growing that number each year. All costs to participate in the challenge are covered by the organization, helping to encourage even more involvement.
“I have run the Corporate Challenge in the past and had a great time, but never had as good a time as I did last year and again this year, as the head of my own corporation. It was great to see many of our employees participate and “blaze the trail” for years to come,” said Dr. Pietropaoli.
And the Victory employees feel the same way. Jody Miller, a PTA at Victory Sports medicine, said “Last year’s Corporate Challenge was my first competitive run and I didn’t know what to expect. I was just very proud of myself that I had what it took to finish.”
Victory Sports Medicine also offers a global Wellness Program for all employees called Victory Well Ahead that focuses on health risk assessments, preventing worksite injuries, stress management strategies and getting fit. Staff participation continues to increase each year.
