Hyland Continues its Partnership with Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon
The Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon welcomes Hyland as a bronze sponsor of its 2017 race held on May 21, which marks its 40th anniversary. The Westlake-based software company is heavily involved in the 2017 event, including having an employee sing the national anthem, organizing a water stop and sponsoring the pace teams.
“We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to partner with the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon again this year, especially for the 40th anniversary,” said Jackie McNamara, wellness programs manager at Hyland. “It’s important for us to connect with our community. This event offers the perfect opportunity to do just that, while encouraging our employees to get active or to participate in other ways.”
Hyland, a leader in providing software solutions for managing content, processes and cases, will kick-off the event by exhibiting at the pre-marathon expo. Employees will be at Booth #719 and available to speak about Hyland’s product suite and the more than 300 available career opportunities with the company.
On race day, Hyland will be right in the middle of the action. Angelina Fiorini, culture programs coordinator at Hyland, will sing the national anthem to start the race, and over 30 employees will run in one of the events. Hyland is also sponsoring the Hy-5 mile again this year – a water stop at mile five notorious for its volunteers cheering and giving runners high-fives. To inspire athletes even more, Hyland will have a DJ at the water stop to keep runners motivated.
The Hyland logo will be printed on the backs of the pace team leaders as they guide participants throughout the new course, which features more of the city’s major landmarks. The pace teams offer marathon and half marathon runners’ support along the way to reach their goal time and have guidance on the course.
“We are thrilled to have Hyland back as a sponsor for our 40th anniversary,” said Ralph Staph, race director for Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon. “Without our sponsors’ support, we couldn’t put on such a successful event. From the national anthem and pace team leaders, to the Hy-5 water stop, Hyland brings energy and motivation to our runners and walkers to keep them moving toward the finish line.”
