CFC Finale Showcases Surprise Talents
NLM’s Team L-eye-brarians—Aresh Pahlavan and Miranda Jarnot—took first honors in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) Minute-to-Win-It competition. The CFC is the federal workforce’s annual charity drive.
Eleven NIH teams faced off in a series of 60-second challenges, featuring thrilling events such as Separation Anxiety, where contestants sorted colored beads into jars, and This Blows, a cup-blowing race. See video from the championship “Balloon Pyramid” round at https://go.usa.gov/xdqKN.
“Thanks to today’s participants, volunteers—the CFC keyworkers, coordinators and organizers—and everyone who pledged to CFC. We appreciate your support!” said Debra Gale, NIH’s CFC program manager.
NEI served as host IC in 2019, organizing events including a 5K walk/run and a karaoke contest to promote NIH’s push toward its $2 million charity fundraising goal. See all CFC event photos and videos at https://go.usa.gov/xdqKQ.
