On Thursday, May 18, 2023, Questar III BOCES employees participated in the annual CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, NY. The event is the largest running event in the Capital Region and a fundraiser for the Hudson-Mohawk Runners Club, who offer a variety of healthy programs and scholarships for kids. Questar III BOCES employees have been participating in this event through our Health and Wellness program for many years.
This year, 7,700 people from across 425 teams participated in the race. Congratulations to the entire Questar III BOCES Team: Jeff Baker, Mark Beaudette, Angela Beber, Emily Brown, Ricardo Estremera, Emily Gargiulo, Maria Gratton, Kimberly Harris, Grace Shover, Sheila Shover & Christine Willmart. We would like to send another round of congratulations out to Ricardo Estremera, who was the race’s first-place men’s finisher, crossing the finish line at 16 minutes & 51 seconds!
Hear what Ricardo had to say about the event in this story from WTEN:
Questar III BOCES is committed to employee wellness through activities, the dissemination of information, and communication of upcoming events. The Questar III BOCES Health and Wellness Committee is comprised of Questar III BOCES employees who volunteer to assist in driving wellness initiatives for the organization. Any employee who is interested in joining the committee should contact Kimberly Harris or Barbara Boudreau.
