Gentle Giant Returns as a Sponsor of the 55th Annual Head Of The Charles Regatta

SOMERVILLE, MA (September 2019) – Gentle Giant is pleased to announce its continued partnership with the Head Of The Charles Regatta, an annual rowing competition which draws in athletes and spectators from all over the world. Our company has been a regatta sponsor since 2011, and we are looking forward to another great year.

As an official sponsor of the regatta, we will be assisting with transportation and storage needs on behalf of the other sponsors to ensure the event is successful. We assist with delivery and assembly of items from other sponsors as well.

“With a long history employing rowers, the Head Of The Charles is one our favorite recruiting activities of the year. It is a great opportunity to meet potential new employees and reconnect with former seasonal staff who have returned to college. Even though the summer feels a long way off, we will already be on the lookout for the next generation of Giants” said Liz Martin, an HR Generalist at Gentle Giant.  

Once again, we will be bringing the Gentle Giant Challenge to the event, a family-friendly challenge for participants of all ages. The participants must climb up a set of stairs and quickly descend via the slide attached to the opposite side.

We offer prizes to the top finishers in various categories. We also plan to offer new social media activities and photo opportunities for prizes, which will be beneficial to those who cannot complete our stair challenge.

“Gentle Giant Moving Company takes special pride in being part of one of the greatest sporting events in the country. We always look forward to working with some of the most passionate people who organize and take great pride in making the Head Of The Charles a most enjoyable event, year after year; not only for the participants, but for the City of Boston” said John Pacocha, Vice President of Gentle Giant.

We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces at the Head Of The Charles Regatta this year on October 19th and 20th.
