An enthusiastic team at the Director Enterprise Architecture (DEA) within VCDS/CFD participated in the five-week October Race for Canada Event (RACE).
We incorporated Enterprise Architecture in our team name LEAn Forward. We tracked our progress every week on a map of Canada and marked our destinations. We talked about the RACE at our team meetings and our destination that week. Our Director encouraged us in discussing it at our meetings. The team members promptly sent in their weekly kilometer totals to their team captain. One of the team members was ill when the RACE started but she soldiered on and did her best to contribute to the team total. Another team member got her young kids out to help with her physical activity. We went for walks together along the Canal. The entire team participated in the activities. Even in Week 3, while we couldn’t get 6 people, some of us still went for a walk.
Overall, the RACE helped our entire team get out and enjoy physical activity together and we had fun while doing it. We’re planning to participate in the RACE again next year.
