20 Dec: Record number of Best Buy employees run in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend

David Garcia felt a piercing pain in his left knee at mile 3 of the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend last Saturday. But he kept going, determined to finish the full 26.2 miles with the support of his family and Team Best Buy. 

“I rounded the corner, and there’s the Best Buy team cheering me on,” said David, vice president of retail operations and profit protection. “It made me happy to see them.” 

He was one of a record 18 members of Team Best Buy who showed up in Tennessee’s second-biggest city with two goals in mind: to fundraise and finish.
