ALPHARETTA, GA – LeasePlan USA took to the streets of downtown Atlanta with a team of more than 200 participants for the Kaiser Permanente Corporate Challenge on Sept. 8, 2011.

“Our employees are truly passionate and committed to living a healthy and active lifestyle. And that shows through our highest participation yet in this year’s Corporate Challenge. Our team has increased from 75 participants two years ago to more than 200 registered this year! It’s not surprising with record-high employee satisfaction scores that a majority of our Atlanta employees were enthusiastic runners and walkers in this fun and exciting event,” said Mike Pitcher, President and CEO.

This year marked the 5K run/walk workplace-organized fitness event’s 26th year in Georgia. Designed to promote health, wellness and fitness among Atlanta’s corporate community, the annual event attracts approximately 15,000 participants from 400-plus companies. A portion of proceeds from the event benefits the Atlanta Braves Foundation and the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
