I'm sure in your business, just like ours, you are always looking to reward exemplary staff. When one of our 'superhuman' distributor's let us know about an incredible event he is partaking in this summer, it was an easy decision to give him full support. We are supporting one of our star employees in the Iron Man Triathlon in Bolton on 17th July 2016. We have paid the £400 registration fee for Dainius Imkaitis in order to secure his place in the event.
The event, labelled "the world's most challenging endurance race", will see Dainius take part in three endurance disciplines; swimming, cycling and running. The event has been the focus of Dainius' training for the past two years and will take up to 17 hours to complete.
The 21-year-old moved to the UK from Lithuania in order to complete a Sports Promotion and Marketing Degree at Huddersfield University. Whilst studying, Dainius works here at Mr Flyer as a leaflet distributor on a part-time basis. Due to his proactive approach and commitment to training, Dainius utilises his time here. He regularly jogs whilst distributing and listens to podcasts in order to educate himself on the job whilst training for his first triathlon.
Graduating this summer, Dainius plans to stay with us until completion of the triathlon before moving back home. He commented "This has been something I have wanted to do for a long time but was unable to get the same support in Lithuania. At Mr Flyer we are a single solid team, we win as one, and we lose as one. I believe that there's a huge level of unity and respect from Andrew, Michael and Jordan for employees. I am very grateful to be given a chance by Andrew to represent Mr Flyer in an Ironman. This will be my first triathlon, and I plan to complete this within 10 hours".
We are very happy to help our employee due to his outstanding efforts with the company, being a regular record-breaker at our monthly Mr Flyer awards. We like to help our employees wherever possible, and the triathlon is something Dainius is really passionate about. We wish him all the luck and hope to be there to cheer him on.
Since the sponsorship we have also helped to raise Dainius' profile through an article in the Yorkshire Post and on the Leeds Chamber of Commerce website (as well as this blog of course!). To find out more about the event itself and to even watch Dainius on the day, please click here.
