AREVA Supports Genworth Virginia 10 Miler with Safety Sponsorship and 110 Participants

Cool temperatures and the occasional downpour couldn’t keep Team AREVA away from the 2015 Genworth Virginia 10 Miler!

LYNCHBURG, Va., October 1, 2015 – For the third consecutive year, AREVA Inc. served as the official safety sponsor of this week’s Genworth Virginia 10 Miler held in Lynchburg, Va. The safety sponsorship included the Safety, Awareness, Fitness, Excellence (S.A.F.E.) Strides initiative, a comprehensive fitness and safety training program offered to all runners in the 10-mile and 4-mile races to help ensure they crossed the finish line the way they began: safe and injury free.

“At AREVA, safety is first and foremost in every aspect of our business,” said Gary Mignogna, president and CEO of AREVA Inc. “Programs like the Genworth Virginia 10 Miler S.A.F.E. Strides program help emphasize AREVA’s unyielding commitment to safety both at work and in our communities.”

In alignment with the company’s strong focus on health and wellness, more than 110 AREVA employees and their families participated in the 10-mile and 4-mile run or walk events. Throughout the year, AREVA encourages employees to engage in a variety of activities supporting improved health in the areas of nutrition and weight management, fitness, stress management, and tobacco cessation and prevention.

AREVA volunteers emphasized runner safety while talking with Genworth Virginia 10 Miler spectators and participants at the AREVA community tent.
