A Different Kind of Engagement
Terryberry is accustomed to helping with employee engagement, but recently we were honored to be a part of a different kind of engagement.
After 20 weeks of training and seven Rock ‘n’ Roll races together, Eduardo and Wanita planned to run their first marathon together in Las Vegas on November 13th, 2016. This marathon was special for the duo for a few reasons.
Running for a Cause
Wanita, who lost her aunt to Alzheimer’s, was determined to make a difference in the lives of those dealing with the disease. She and Eduardo planned to raise Alzheimer’s disease awareness and money for the cause through their first marathon.

Love Goes the Distance
Meanwhile, Eduardo had plans of his own. With the help of Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon staff, Eduardo learned about Terryberry’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon jewelry. He contacted Terryberry, and was in touch with Brenda, to whom he outlined his plan and asked for help. After discussing back and forth, Terryberry provided a custom “I love Running” ring, inscribed with “Your love INSPIRES NEW BEATS in my heart”. Along with the ring, Terryberry also provided a Rock Legend charm bracelet.
Your love INSPIRES NEW BEATS in my heart
Eduardo kept these items in his backpack throughout the race and once they crossed the finish line, Eduardo proposed! Wanita’s answer? “Yes!”
CONGRATS AND THANK YOU FOR LETTING TERRYBERRY BE A PART OF YOUR SPECIAL DAY!
