Forty-five institute members participated in the REWE Team Challenge Dresden on Wednesday night, June 12th. This event is one of the biggest company runs in Germany. For this exciting event, members of the research groups of Eric Geertsma, Anthony Hyman, Rita Mateus, Jacqueline Tabler, and Jonathan Rodenfels from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) joined forces with an strong representation from the scientific services and facilities as well as the administrative staff. Running from the Kulturpalast, via the Zwinger, along the banks of the Elbe, and into the Rudolf-Harbig stadium, the eleven teams successfully completed the five-kilometer course.

The team challenge participation is a component of MPI-CBG's Health Initiative, which aims to enhance employee wellbeing. Measures covering a wide range of topics include physical education classes, mental health seminars, health screenings, and health days. The Max Planck Society's collaboration with Technische Krankenkasse makes many of these activities possible.

Congratulations to all participants in the team challenge!
