History of whole person challenge part 1: how it began
Bandwidth’s Whole Person Challenge started in 2010, adopting a culture of being “active” and working out together during lunch. This later opened up opportunities to be a part of the RAAM Challenge where Bandwidth teammates challenged the 4 man cycling crew of David Morken, John Murdock, Joe Parke and Sean Matt racing cross-country from California to the Maryland Coast. The office team beat the RAAM team by 2 days. From this initial event, the Whole Person Challenge was born and now all employees have the opportunity to better themselves (mind, body and soul), in turn winning a day of PTO and improving their quality of life.
