Company returns as the title sponsor of the FedEx Pittsburgh Marathon Relay and FedEx Pittsburgh Corporate Challenge
PITTSBURGH—P3R is pleased to announce FedEx Ground, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), has renewed its commitment to continue supporting the FedEx Pittsburgh Marathon Relay as a title sponsor for three years, as well as its sponsorship of the FedEx Pittsburgh Corporate Challenge and FedEx Ground Gear Check at all of P3R’s year-round calendar of events.
Since 2009, FedEx Ground has been the title sponsor of the FedEx Pittsburgh Marathon Relay. The event, which is part of the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend of Events, is one of the largest marathon relay events in the country and attracts more than 500 teams of two to five people each year.
“We are proud to continue to support P3R and its mission to inspire any and all to move,” Bob Pudlo, FedEx Ground, Vice President, Operations Support & Engineering said. “At FedEx, we are committed to serving the communities where our team members live and work, and know that events such as the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon have a long-lasting, positive impact on participants and the Pittsburgh community.”
Each year, the FedEx Pittsburgh Corporate Challenge motivates hundreds of employees across the region to lace up their running shoes and train for any of the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend of Events. The program combines running and endurance-related goals into existing workplace wellness programs and challenges coworkers to work together toward the unique accomplishment of crossing the finish line.
“The support we’ve received from FedEx Ground over the past 15 years has been tremendous,” said Troy Schooley, P3R CEO. “Not only are they a terrific partner because of their presence and commitment to Pittsburgh, but also they share our passion for keeping the community active and healthy.”
As sponsor of the FedEx Ground Gear Check, the company’s team members help transport thousands of runner bags from the start line to the finish line at the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon and EQT Pittsburgh 10 Miler.
