Red Shoe Run Team Tuesday: Team IBERIABANK inspired by families they know
This #TeamTuesday we’re featuring one of our largest teams, Team IBERIABANK! Their captain, Erica Murphy, first started working with RMHCA as a member of Alpha Delta Pi while at the University of Alabama. She’s continued sharing her time and talents and we’re thrilled to welcome Team IBERIABANK and our 50+ other teams downtown on March 16, 2019 for Red Shoe Run: Rockin 5K!
Why do you think Red Shoe Run resonates with IBERIABANK? With 40 members, there must be a lot of passion for running and/or RMHCA! The Red Shoe Run resonates with IBERIABANK because of their love for the community and the services RMHCA offers. I have found that many of our team members are not avid runners but have chosen to participate with their family as a way to give back to the community.
Have there been any special comments or stories a team member has shared about why they registered to participate in Red Shoe Run? Many of our team members know families who have received services from RMHCA and witnessed the impact it had on those families.
There are two team members who stand out: Burt Chandler, Director of Bank Operations, and David Sparacio, Director of Accounting Operations. Burt personally walked through the IBERIABANK Operations Center to recruit and encourage participation and his efforts added 8 members to our team. David is combining his passion for running and supporting a great cause. He has set the bar high and is on pace to exceed his personal fundraising goal of $500!
IBERIABANK has knocked it out of the park spreading the word and raising money for Red Shoe Run! What’s the secret to the success? IBERIABANK prides itself on supporting the community and encourages its team members to participate in great events like the Red Shoe Run. Plus, our employees love a little friendly competition!
Without giving away any surprises, will Team IBERIABANK be dressing up for the Rockin’ 5K? IBERIABANK is thrilled to support such an amazing organization! You will definitely be able to find us on race day!
What would you like to say to someone who’s thinking about running but hasn’t registered yet? This is an event you don’t want to miss! Not only is the course flat and dog/stroller friendly but the after party includes live music, food trucks, and kids’ activities! Come join us for a rockin’ good time!
