Virtual Team Activities Update

Dear Team!

First, and most importantly, the Board and coaches hope this update finds you healthy and safe. As Matt highlighted in last week’s email, your safety and well-being are our priority. He also noted that we’ve put together a committee dedicated to bringing fun, engaging, and helpful activities to you!

I’m delighted to announce that we have a number of activities on deck – some of which have either already started or will be starting this week. Please see below a list of what will be coming your way!

  • Weekly live yoga with DWRT’s very own Leah Robbins.
  • Weekly live strength and core exercises with Coach Emmi.
  • Weekly live Happy Hour (hosted by Jess Chen!) with coaches joining.
  • Weekly Netflix movie live hangout / chat (First up: Dawn Wall this Friday @ 8:30pm).
  • Weekly live board game night.
  • Weekly links to healthy food recipes from Coach Laura and Brigette.
  • Periodic recordings of coaches and teammates favorite runs.
  • #Runsolo photo competition.
  • A daily [self-made] Olympic Torch carrying by volunteering members.

 

These are merely what’s confirmed: there’s more in the pipeline! Coaches and committee members will be reaching out on the details of these activities through our FB group, Instagram, and Meetup – which will continue to serve as our main docking point for registration and online links. In addition, we are working on a “calendar” that will help keep these activities easily accessible and organized.

We understand that members may have additional ideas and encourage you to connect with us: dashingwhippets@gmail.com.

In times like these, having a strong sense of community is vital for our emotional health. We hope the Whippets can continue to be here for you and we’re excited to get these activities going.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Arthur

Matt
