"What was pretty cool about the race was that we were well represented from various Hospital departments, including housekeepers, doctors, nurses and mental health staff, who really become part of a team," said Terry Geist, Team Co-Captain and Associate Director of the Community Mental Health Center. "It really represented an example of the Hospital's Core Values," he added, which adopted by staff as a guide to working at St. John's, includes teamwork.
