Over the last few years, Phillips Management Group has REALLY stepped up their efforts to support Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC. In fact, they have won the Piedmont Triad Apartment Association’s Owner’s Cup for raising the most food (per unit) of all the management company members of the association.

Phillips is very active in the community in many other ways, including actively supporting the work of Partners Ending Homelessness, as well as participating in innumerable community service projects in the many cities in which they have properties.

They donated enough for a week’s worth of sponsorship and this weekend constituted days 5-7.  Much thanks to Maria, Brandon and the entire team at Phillips for supporting the walk (and PTAA’s Food Drive) and for continuing to be leaders in our community!




Activity Days 60-62: Walked the streets of Winston-Salem, mostly around Williamsburg Square, and then did a LOT of stuff around the house. Let’s just say I think I put on a show worthy of a Dirty Jobs episode.

Miles walked/run: 12.51 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:


Miles remaining in challenge: 35.98
