Aquicore Runs For Clean Energy in CELI 5K July 4, 2016 | Roger LeBlanc

You may not expect to find a software company running the trails, but that’s exactly where the Aquicore team was last weekend during the second annual Clean Energy 5K.

 

The race was organized by the Clean Energy Leadership Institute (CELI) and took place at the beautiful Fletcher’s Cove alongside the C + O Canal.

 

Aquicore team members and our families ran as The Aquicorians, one of the larger teams present at the race. In total, Aquicore raised $710, far surpassing our original goal. All proceeds contribute to CELI’s goals of developing young leaders for the clean energy field.

 

Liam Monahan, one of our rockstar software engineers, had the fastest run out of our team – finishing at an impressive 22:32.

 

The team as a whole received a shout out for having the best uniforms!

 

We are proud to be part of DC’s robust clean energy scene,” says Account Executive Christian Pollard, “We always enjoy the opportunity to connect with other companies doing great work to increase energy efficiency and speed up society’s transition away from fossil fuel based energy sources.
