CHARLOTTE, N.C., September 30, 2014 – AREVA Inc. supported the Genworth Virginia 10 Miler as the official safety sponsor, and by sponsoring the S.A.F.E. Strides program (Safety Awareness, Fitness Excellence). This is the second year that AREVA has supported the VA 10 Miler in Lynchburg, Virginia, with this sponsorship, providing runners in the 10-mile and 4-mile races the option to participate in a comprehensive fitness and safety training program to help ensure that they crossed the finish line the way they began – safe and injury free.
“At AREVA, we believe that a strong safety culture is the foundation of a successful business and a healthy, engaged workforce,” said Gary Mignogna, president and CEO of AREVA Inc. “AREVA utilizes sponsorships and community outreach events like the VA 10 Miler S.A.F.E.
