“Come and Run ? Listen to the Sea Breeze”
2021 Qingdao Mini Marathon of JT&N Senior Partners
On the first day of the meeting, the senior partners participating therein carried out a mini-marathon team building activity along the coast of Shilaoren Bathing Beach with a beautiful scenery. Shilaoren is a typical landscape for marine-abrasion stacks on the bedrock coast of our country. The old man rests his cheeks in his hand, gazing afar and deep in meditation, who welcomes the sun in the morning and sees off the sunset glow in the evening on each and every day, and who goes through many vicissitudes of life with the ebb and flow. This masterpiece of art carved by nature has become an important symbol of the Shilaoren National Tourism Resort , and is also a famous tourist attraction in Qingdao. The mini-marathon starts from Shilaoren Beach in the east and ends at the Haizhifeng Square in the west, the beautiful scenery and rich artistic sculptures along which have lightened the participants to be high-spirited, vigorous and energetic, and walk as if on wings.
At 9 o'clock in the morning, the partners participating in the team building activity assembled on the Shilaoren Beach, and Chen YANG, director of the Decision-Making Committee of JT&N, made a mobilization speech. With the warm-up of the passionate Zumba dance coming to an end, the mini-marathon officially started after the whistle of Mr. Bin ZHENG, founding partner of JT&N.
Accompanied by the sparkling sea surface and the gentle sea breeze, and breathing the fresh air, every participant took vigorous step, and stopped to take pictures from time to time. All partners participated in the mini-marathon throughout the process. Afterwards, everyone returned to the Shilaoren Beach, and carried out the Zumba dance and tug-of-war competitions under the guidance of the team building coaches. The members in every team were united as one and worked together to fight for the victory of their team.
As the old saying goes: A single thread can’t make a cord nor a single tree a forest. JT&Ners have adhered to the concept of “Integrity and Honesty, Diligence and Mutual Growth” at all times, strengthened the rapport and drawn the distance close between each other in team building activities just to jointly march forward and create a better future with closer connection, fuller enthusiasm, and unity and cooperation.
