Team IntelliCorp Runs for Charity and Fun in the Turkey Trot 2017

November 28, 2017 | B Taunt
This Thanksgiving, Team IntelliCorp gathered with friends and families to join in the Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot in San Jose. It was our biggest company turnout yet!

This year, we wore our green IntelliCorp running shirts and joined the blue sea of participants wearing navy blue shirts – you couldn’t miss us! We participate in the Fittest Firm Competition each year, to see who will win, depending on the most participants. As a small company, we reached our largest number, with 22 people. 

The Turkey Trot in San Jose involves numerous companies around the bay and encourages volunteers to support the runners and walkers along the course. The event involves the whole San Jose community from the companies in the bay area to the volunteers from schools.  The 5K/10K run also offers a CEO challenge that our own CEO, Jerry Klajbor, runs in every year along with other high ranked individuals. Our CTO, Chris Trueman even ran oversees in the UK to support our efforts.

We were so happy to join the race this year for our 5th year supporting the efforts of the creator of the Turkey Trot, Carl Guardino, who is the CEO and President of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Foundation. Carl and his wife Leslee came up with the race in 2005 and from then on thousands of people gather to support the race across the country.

The Silicon Valley Turkey Trot is special because it uses the wealth of the tech hub for good and donates to five different charities including the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties; Second Harvest Food Bank Santa Cruz County; Housing Trust Silicon Valley; Healthier Kids Foundation; and the Health Trust.
The Fittest Firm Competition also allows us the opportunity to network and discover other companies in the bay area. Companies attend the event and handout giveaways after the race to the participants. This year, we handed out our IntelliCorp tote bags and people could not get enough! As soon as some of us finished the race, we immediately saw our green tote bags everywhere.
