Expectations Were High on Race Day
On July 15th The JDK Group joined twenty-three other local businesses in the annual United Way Trike Race held in downtown Harrisburg. All the teams competing in this wacky, pseudo-cut-throat event were vying for the coveted Trike Race trophy!
“It was a great day full of laughter and camaraderie.”

The team that took the trophy home was Capital BlueCross (in blue), but Wegmans (in yellow) made a good showing and came in second, while Penn National Insurance (in pink) placed third.
