CLARK Material Handing Company participated and raised awareness in the Tri-4-Freedom 27-hour triathlon.

A total of 33 employees participated or volunteered in the two day event that consisted of a two and a half hour swim, 12 ½ hour bike ride and 12 hour run. The event held on June 7th & 8th aims to advocate for the 27 million people enslaved worldwide, promote social and environmental sustainability in sports and financially support human trafficking survivors.

CLARK’s chief operations officer Chuck Moratz commented, “The cause resonates with our employees and the event was a great one. We hope to field three teams next year.” For more information on Tri-4-Freedom visit their website at www.tri4freedom.org.
