Accountants know the importance of staying healthy and active during the busy tax season. Despite long working hours and unseasonably warm weather, Kassouf had two teams and eight employees run the Mercedes Marathon Relay this February!
With a 15-year history, the Mercedes Marathon is local to Birmingham, but draws international attention. Attracting avid runners from around the world, the event consists of several races including a marathon, half marathon, and marathon relay. The marathon relay breaks the 26.2-mile distance into shorter legs designed for teams of five runners.
Both Kassouf teams completed the relay in four and a half hours and within minutes of each other! Congratulations to our employees who participated: Krystal Pino, Maria Cecil, Jonathan Kassouf, Rebecca Yerby, Balea Perrigin, Katie Krack, Julie Parker, and Claudia Headrick.
Each year, proceeds from this event benefit the Bell Center, which provides special education and therapy for premature children or those with developmental delays and genetic disorders.
