December 2017 Progress Update

The year is now over and, incredibly, 94 runners have completed our Withum 300 challenge of running 300 miles or more over the course of 2017. Even more amazingly, 11 individuals achieved the honor of Withum 300 Platinum — which means they ran 1,000 more more. One team member even hit over 2,000 miles! As a result of these great efforts, the group as a whole completed over 66,000 miles over the course of the year, which means over $33,000 will be donated on behalf of Withum to the Staff Hardship Relief Fund.

Withum 300 Raises Over $33,000 for Staff Hardship Relief Fund

withum300-18 - long

Our Withum 300 health and fitness group was once again recognized at Monday’s annual State of the Firm event for their efforts by awarding each team member who completed the challenge of running 300 miles or more over the course of 2017 with a personalized Withum 300 running shirt.

And for good reason: our group of over 200 active participants ran a total of 66,399 miles, a “personal best” since the program was initiated in 2014. And this wasn’t a matter of simply hitting more miles because more people were participating — the group averaged 311 miles (up from last year’s 303) and, unbelievably, eleven people managed to finish with over 1,000 miles.

That isn’t to take away from the incredible growth of Withum 300. This year’s class saw 95 team members achieve their goal of running 300 miles or more, which is more than double the amount of people who participated in the program in its initial year and up from the 84 who accomplished the feat last year.

Perhaps the accomplishment the group is most proud of, however, is the fact that their efforts helped raise significant funds towards the Staff Hardship Relief Fund, which was established in 2012 to financially assist our team members and their families who are experiencing a temporary hardship due to a significant life event. For the second year in a row, the firm generously agreed to donate 50 cents per mile, resulting in $33,199 being contributed to the fund (up from last year’s $27,524). Since its inception, the Staff Hardship Relief Fund has assisted 20 of the applications received and we are certain these additional funds will go a long way to ensuring that we can continue helping those in need.

Withum has once again agreed to donate 50 cents per mile in 2018 and based on our initial response, we anticipate an even larger group of runners to join Withum 300 this year. We can’t wait to see what this year’s group can accomplish! Be sure to continue visiting our blog to follow our progress and hear our stories!
