Elancers Soar Like Warriors, Raise $2,200 for Charity.

If there’s one word to describe the Elance team, it’s “competitive.”

We’re constantly competing hard to find great new ways to make our platform even more awesome. We’re always competing to find and hire top people to come work at Elance. Heck, we’re even competing with each other to grab that last parmesan bagel from Elance’s daily breakfast bar.

Hence it’s no wonder many on the Elance team carried that competitive spirit over to the weekend, where a few days back several Elancers competed in the Warrior Dash 5K race in Hollister, California. It’s a mud-crawling, fire-leaping, obstacle-climbing extreme “run from hell.” It’s also a great cause, with money being raised to help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In all, 23 Elancers from our Mountain View, California office competed in the Warrior Dash – raising over $2,200 for the more-than-worthy cause. It was a fun (though exhausting) time for all of the participants, and everyone was showered by Monday and had their competitive juices going strong.



A brave and innovative two-pronged activity for introducing Elance and raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
