ROSEN supports sporting initiatives and accomplishments in sport. We are proud to sponsor charity sports events in many parts of the world and to support inspiring people who make use of their athletic skills for good causes.
We also support sporting activities for our employees, as we believe that a healthy spirit prefers a healthy body. At our German site, for example, we offer sports activities to employees to keep everyone fit and active.
Employee Marathon Team Challenge
The General Management at ROSEN Lingen, Germany tempted their employees with a trip to Houston, Texas. The only catch was they had to run a marathon in order to earn their plane ticket. As the idea and the running fever spread over the ROSEN offices around the globe, eventually nearly 80 ROSEN employees from four countries accepted the challenge of running a marathon, or half marathon, in January 2013.
In the end, employees from Oldenzaal, Lingen, and Bogota, landed in Houston with their running shoes in hand and plenty of team spirit at heart. Co-workers from our office in Houston completed the ROSEN running team. After over a year of preparation our ROSEN employees from three continents were ready for their once-in-a-lifetime experience: together they participated in one of the fastest marathon courses in the world, the Chevron Houston Marathon.
Climbing for Hope
Shawn Peet, Manager of Operations, is a valuable member of our ROSEN office in Houston, USA. Shawn took up mountain climbing more than four years ago, and has already conquered the highest peaks on three different continents, including Mt. McKinley in North America and Mt. Aconcagua in South America. Driven by his own self-motivation, Shawn has taken his desire to climb the world’s mountains to yet another level of inspiration.
His Climbing for Hope initiative is raising money for good causes including The Alberta Children’s Hospital and The Texas Children’s Hospital. The ROSEN Group is proud to support Shawn in his climbing efforts, and in line with our company attitude towards safety and reliability, ROSEN has provided Shawn with a range of safety equipment for climbing. During his ascents ROSEN tracks Shawn via a GPS transmitter that relays his location and status while on the mountain.
Chris Yoxall, Vice President ROSEN USA, says, “Shawn is a great global citizen who decided that his passion for climbing could benefit others.”
