Record Breaking

Record Breaking

Adam Gill: “We smashed the previous diaper wrapping record… set by 5th graders.”

Nothing like a bunch of adults crushing some 10-and 11-year-olds to put everyone in the holiday spirit! While recently wrapping diapers at Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank, the volunteers from Choice One (including Adam, far left) took it upon themselves to wrap a record number of diapers in a shift, a position previously held by a local 5th grade class.

If you didn’t know, we at Choice One tend to make just about anything competitive—coney-eating, sledgehammer golf, or normal, everyday things like whose spouse is the coolest. We can’t help but see a record or goal and not want to blow it out of the water, even if that means we are coerced into buying lunch with our winnings or that winning means embarrassment rather than achievement.

In case you’re wondering, the 5th graders’ record was around 23,000 diapers wrapped, and the Choice One crew wrapped around 31,000 in the same amount of time. While it shouldn’t be a surprise that our group of adults could beat a group of kids, we at Choice One know better: we have all been previously beaten by a two-year-old in an NCAA bracket pool, so we have to be on our game, working hard at any opportunity.

Here’s to another year of record-setting fun and fulfilling work at Choice One in 2024. Happy New Year!
