The staff that runs together stays together #WeareVRSkolor

Last week, more than 230 VR Schools staff members met up to run or walk the Bellmans Race in Stockholm.  This is the largest relay race in Sweden.

After an intense school start week, this was just the boost the staff needed to “kick-off” the new school year.

 

 

With so many new faces joining our organization each year, it is important that we meet each other to talk and laugh and network.  As each team completed their race, the rest of us cheered them on!

This was the first year that teams were able to walk the Bellman’s Race.  In teams of five, they could walk the whole track together.  This change made it possible for every staff member to join.

On Wednesday night, our organization had the largest number of participants and were featured in the press the following day:  Bellmanstafetten slår alla rekord!

We believe it is important to promote the well-being of our teachers … healthy teachers lead healthy schools.  In our group, we had participants of all ages, 19 – 67.

With more than 60 teams, every school participated.  Each school did “top” one team.  This made for some stiff competition.  In the end, VRS Djursholm team won!

Thanks to VRS Vasastan for organizing – a great night had by all!
