About the Event
This event is the Annual Instron Day where employees play games, eat BBQ and all around have fun. They want to add therapy dogs to promote mental health and wellness among their employees. It is an outdoor event with cornhole, life size Jenga, BBQ, and dog therapy. Two different 1.5 hour blocks are offered to stagger our teams and extend our presence. Intron will be making a company donation and will generously match individual employee’s donations 3:1. Teams will be offered lunch. Pets and People will recruit a total of 4 teams staggered from 12:15-1:45 and 12:45-2:15. That way you’ll start with 2 teams, have 4 teams together for an hour and end the last half hour with 2 teams
