Ingram Micro Celebrates The Olympics

Getting into the Olympic spirit, the associates at Ingram Micro’s Santa Ana headquarters recently held an “Associate Appreciation Day” which celebrated the company’s winning spirit, athletes everywhere and the community.

As part of the ceremonies, Ingram Micro donated $10,000 to the Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC).  We were lucky enough to have representatives from SOSC, including David Armendariz, regional director SOSC, and Stephanie Hardy, Gold Medalist from the 2003 World Games in Dublin, Ireland.

Associates also participated in their 1st ever Ingram Micro Office Olympics, complete with “Shoe” put, tricycle races and an egg relay race, to mention a few of the competitions.

Another highlight of the day was seeing an actual Olympic Torch, brought in by North America President Keith Bradley, who on June 14, carried the Torch in front of hundreds of cheering onlookers in Walkerburn, a small town near Edinburgh, Scotland, in what he described as one of the most thrilling experiences of his life.  After Keith shared his experience of carrying the Torch, associates got a chance to see it up close.

A good time was had by all!
