DAT Weekend Warriors Fight Pediatric Cancer

DAT sponsored a team of 13 employees who conquered a 3.1-mile obstacle course in the muddy, mountainous terrain of Northern Oregon last weekend. Their objective: Complete the Warrior Dash, a fundraiser for pediatric cancer research and treatment at St. Jude Hospital for Children.

A good time was had by all, according to event participants. The DAT team, pictured below, included employees from engineering, project management, quality assurance, sales and customer support.
