Talking Rain’s 8th Annual Fun Run

Talking Rain Hosts 8th Annual Fun Run

Rain Makers Participate in Company 5K to Support Foster Care Families

Rain Makers recently laced up their running shoes for the 8th Annual 5K Fun Run, which took place at the company headquarters in Preston, Washinton. During the race, walkers and runners made their way down the Preston-Snoqualmie Trail, a 6.5 mile gravel trail that weaves through the Snoqualmie Valley. The trail is popular among residents and companies in the Preston Industrial Park.

For each Rain Maker who participated in the 5K, Talking Rain donated a set of pajamas to a foster child in need. In total, we donated nearly 70 pairs of pajamas.

“We’ve been putting on this race since 2011 and it continues to be one of our favorite events of the year” says Veronica Blankenship, Senior Manager of Human Resources and Development. “Not only do we get to take the afternoon off and enjoy the trail in our backyard, but it’s for a great cause.”

Rain Makers are cheered on by their co-workers from the beer garden, conveniently located at the finish line. As is tradition, the top three men and women racers received cash prizes and bragging rights for the rest of the year.
