Riverside Logistics and ten other teams from a variety of companies in the Richmond area competed in the fourth annual RVA LogistXGames on Thursday April 26, 2018. Sponsored by CBRE/Richmond, the Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA) and the Virginia Port Authority, the event is designed to showcase the talents of employees in this business sector, as well as emphasize the importance of logistics and distribution to the region. The proceeds support workforce development programs available through the Community College Workforce Alliance. This year the games raised $20,000.
As in previous years, the competition was friendly but fierce in events like those performed daily in warehouse environments. The Riverside team consisted of two men and two women who demonstrated their skills in events like the Pallet Puzzle Sprint, the Pallet Jack Relay, the Pick/Pack Hurdle and the Box Put.
The Riverside team won two events…the box decorating event for the Box Put and the Box Put event itself. Sara DeLancy decorated the box, using her considerable artistic talents. Sara is a member of Riverside’s Transportation team. Louis Watson successfully threw the box that Sara decorated the farthest of all the teams (over 48 feet) without breaking the three bottles carefully wrapped inside by team members Jogli Vega, Jennifer Rivera, and Cynthia Jackson. Congratulations Captain Michael Kenny and to all the competitors! We look forward to seeing you again next year!
