EA Professionals Compete in Tough Mudder to Support Water For People
Hunt Valley, Maryland (21 September 2018)—EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, announced today that several professionals from its Syracuse, New York office, competed in the 2018 Tough Mudder Western New York to raise funds and awareness for Water For People, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to providing sustainable access to water and sanitation in developing countries.
EA’s employees were members of a team called the Salt City Scientists, which also included professionals from the Syracuse office of Anchor-QEA, and their family and friends. Team members underwent 6 months of rigorous training, which paid off, as the team successfully completed the 12-mile, 20-obstacle course on a hot August day. In addition to finishing the grueling course, the Salt City Scientists team raised more than $2,150 for Water For People. This marked the second consecutive year that personnel from EA’s Syracuse office have participated in this endurance race in support of Water For People.
“EA’s corporate commitment to Water For People has been the catalyst for many great fundraising activities, which serve to enhance teamwork skills and build comradery, in addition to raising money for a worthy cause,” said Robert Casey, Vice President and Manager of EA’s New York operations. “Competing in such events allows us to grow the community of people who understand the important work of Water For People, while challenging ourselves both individually and as a team.”
