Sysmex New Zealand Takes On The Corporate Challenge 2019
Rain at last year’s event didn’t dampen enthusiasm for the Corporate Challenge this year, with over 1200 people turning out to take part in the 5km fun run around the Auckland Domain on 20 November. The weather was considerably nicer this year, and participants enjoyed the beautiful course past the Auckland Museum with a view out to the harbour.
A team of fifteen Sysmex New Zealand staff took part, including a good turn out amongst newer staff members. Renu Bhatia, who joined the company earlier this year, commented that representing the company at the event made her feel part of the Sysmex team. “It was a good eye opener to my personal fitness level as well and I’m feeling motivated to do better next time,” she said.
After the race, the Sysmex team stayed behind at the Domain to enjoy some refreshments and watch the sunset.
The Corporate Challenge is held in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch each year, encouraging businesses to promote health and well-being among their staff, as well as providing an opportunity for team building and a fun evening out.
