Despite the chilly weather, VNB employees and several valued customers had a fabulous time at the 83rd annual Montpelier Hunt Races. It was a day full of fun family activities and community. The Montpelier Hunt Races were first held in 1934 in James Madison’s front lawn. Since then, the Montpelier Races have become a premier steeplechase event on the national stage. Always held on the first Saturday of November, the races never fail to provide thrilling entertainment and gather an enthusiastic crowd. VNB was honored to be a presenting sponsor of the 2017 races and looks forward to next years event.
Virginia National Bank has been working with Nikki Hart, a local certified personal trainer, to promote a healthier workforce through the Corporate Fitness Challenge. VNB recently sponsored Nikki in the 2017 Obstacle Course Racing World Championships. The Obstacle Course Racing World Championships were first held in 2014 and have become the premier event for the sport. Participants for this race must qualify in order to compete. The race was nearly eight miles long and was scattered with challenging obstacles.
Nikki placed second in her division and 57th out of all the women that competed! Amazing work, Nikki!
Some things in life happen that are out of anyone’s control. Virginia National Bank employees may occasionally have health issues or emergencies that are serious and need to be addressed. VNB supports our staff members and their families to make sure their health is the first priority.
Many people may not have even been aware that Wendy had been diagnosed with cancer. Motivated to face her cancer head on, Wendy did what she needed to do to achieve a cancer-free life, once again. It wasn’t an option for her to have self-pity; she kept strong and continued to carry on and go to work every day.
Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital’s Dr. Gregg and his team worked with Wendy to make sure she received the highest quality of care throughout her cancer treatments and surgeries.
VNB cannot be more grateful to know Wendy has successfully beat cancer and is now living a healthy, full life with her family.
