Community matters: That’s why we ran the D.O.G.
Team Henderson Run the Dog 2016

In order to do well, you have to feel well. In order to feel well, you have to live well.

At Henderson, Inc. we believe you only do your best when you’re at your best, and that means eating well, staying active and giving back to your community.

Henderson Running the Dog 2016That’s why we’ve been a long-time supporter of the annual Run the D.O.G. St. race – a 5K race and fun run that features a scenic route through Colonial Williamsburg and the College of William & Mary. This year, like in past years, we are an in-kind sponsor, providing various materials needed to support the event.

But it isn’t just the act of offering a little community support that drives us to champion the race. It’s the fact that proceeds from the run go to fund important charities that help our neighbors. This year’s race benefited the Angels of Mercy Medical Clinic, which provides free, quality health care to uninsured residents of greater Williamsburg, Charles City and New Kent.

And we’re not a company that just donates and walks away. We believe in walking the walk – or in this case running the run.Henderson Run the Dog 2016

We assembled a team of 20 runners and walkers to represent Henderson at the April 23 race. We’ve even got a five-week training schedule to help our team prepare.

It’s important to show up for the community. It’s even more important to build community through events like this.

"Henderson minimizes the impact of problems…They don't let ego control relationships. The bottom line is they're fun to do business with."
