Social interaction promotes quality of life and improves social skills. It’s important to us to provide frequent opportunities for our staff to hang out with their peers. We work towards promoting camaraderie and team building with a range of events from board game nights in the office to group outings including picnics at the local park, a barbecue, or bowling.
Good Foot Run Club
Good Foot has partnered with Black Toe Running and Achilles Canada to support the Good Foot Run Crew. During training season, runners of all abilities meet once a week with volunteers from the Black Toe Run Club to lead participants through warm ups, form development exercises and core running activities. They provide coaching designed to learn proper running techniques and improve speed, while tailoring to all abilities.
The Good Foot Run Crew participates in two races every year, the Pride and Remembrance Run and the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon. Training begins 6 weeks before the race and focuses on all aspects of running including hill work and endurance. On race day, each participant is matched with a pacer from Black Toe or a Good Foot office team member. There’s always a post-celebration to look forward to at the finish line!
We are grateful to our amazing partners at Black Toe Running and the Black Toe Run Club who supply our team jerseys, while running shoes are graciously donated by Achilles Canada for all participants.
