July 11, 2014
CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 11, 2014 – AREVA Inc. has been named the official Safety Sponsor for the Novant Health Thunder Road Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K events scheduled for Nov. 15, 2014. The sponsorship includes safety walk downs of the course alongside Thunder Road’s safety and security experts, running safety kits for several race participants, and other benefits for AREVA Inc. employees.
“As a global supplier to the nuclear power industry, AREVA and our nearly 5,000 employees in North America make safety our number one priority at work, at home and at play,” said Cassie Hagan, AREVA Inc. vice president of communications and executive sponsor of the AREVA Inc. team. “Our strong safety culture, combined with our commitment to health and wellness, translates well to our sponsorship of the Thunder Road events because we want everyone to leave the race the same way they arrived – safe and injury free.”
This is the second consecutive year that AREVA Inc. has signed on as a sponsor for Thunder Road. Race Director Tim Rhodes says this kind of continued commitment shows the impact the Thunder Road event has on the community.
“This is the largest celebration of health and wellness in the Charlotte area,” said Rhodes. “A community that embraces healthy lifestyle choices is the kind of place people want to live and to work in – and the kind that businesses want to be in!”
