Run for Red Tab 2017: A New Global RecordMay 1, 2017
Every summer, hundreds of LS&Co. employees Run for Red Tab Foundation at races in Brussels, Cape Town, San Francisco, and Singapore. By literally pounding the pavement, this year’s participants brought in over $50,000 to provide hope for members of the LS&Co. community facing financial emergencies. And now our bottoms look that much better in a pair of 501s – fitness for a cause sure feels good. To all the runners and donors – thank you for your support!
San Francisco’s Market Street Flagship Store Assistant Manager Victor Cerda Guzman led a team of runners from his location. He had a lot of great things to say about the experience:
“This was my first year at Run for Red Tab, as both a participant and a team leader. I wanted the flagship store to be represented in a big way. I planned for months in advance to organize with my peers. I was in charge of motivating all the runners at our store. Instead of picking different race legs, we decided to all do the 5k together and came up with a team motto: ‘It’s not who finishes first– It’s finishing as a team that matters.’ Driven by this motto, we really enjoyed running the event together. Everyone wants do it again.
Personally, I think the Red Tab Foundation is a great resource that LS&Co. provides to its employees. Employees helping employees is so wonderful as a concept; the fact that we have something to back us up in case anything happens. Most other companies don’t offer that kind of support structure.”
