Carolyn Nerber,
2011 Challenge
What is your role at Catholic Health?

 IT Project Manager

How many times have you participated in the corporate challenge? Running or walking? 

I've ran two times.

What do you like about the Corporate Challenge? What motivates you to participate?

It's an opportunity to give back, represent Catholic Health and get to know co-workers better. It helps to build relationships.

How do you prepare for the race?

I train on my own.

Do you have any advice for first-time walkers or runners?

Parking is limited, so get there early and/or carpool. The course is nicely routed and has a lot of space to run and/or walk in a group without feeling crowded.

I love when the Buffalo Firefighters participate and spray the crowd while running – very refreshing.

Do you have any family or friends who are participating? 

I participate with friends from Catholic Health. We get a lot of time to spend prior to, during, and after the event.

Do you have any words of encouragement for the runners and walkers in tomorrow’s race?

Get some rest, stretch and drink lots of water.

Thanks Carolyn!
