Thovson and family shown here sporting SJF colors were out in force this past month supporting High Tides Swim Club and the USA Swimming Foundation. The purpose of the event was to raise some donations via the Swim-a-thon challenge.
Eric’s daughter Bella completed an impressive 240 laps in 1 hour and 53 minutes for a total of 6,000 meters (almost 4 miles). Pretty awesome Bella! Erick swam a total of 1,800 meters adding to the total. Eric & Bella’s effort helped rack up some additional donation dollars for the event.
The event saw over 56 athletes ranging in age from 7 to 48 years old participate in this event in support of our non-profit organization dedicated to providing developmental and competitive swimming opportunities to children in the greater Hutchinson area. USA Swimming clubs have over 12,000 registered athletes aged 18 and under in Minnesota and it is the single largest organized activity for kids in the United States.
This event raised over $10,000 thanks to the support and generosity of it’s sponsors. 95% of the money raised stays with our local club to help fund our scholarship program for swimmers with financial hardships. The other 5% goes to the USA Swimming Foundation to support national initiatives.
Ericks involvement in swimming had been as a Dad and President of the Board of Directors until recently. Erick is now back in the water as an official member of United States Masters Swimming. For now it is fitness driven, but at some point Erick claims he may get up the courage to race in a Master’s meet. Maybe about 30-40 pounds from now. One thing is for sure, the Sales team at SJF will surely taunt him relentlessly in his quest.
Keep and eye open in the months ahead for further updates. Till then, keep your head above water Eric and keep strok’en.

Kendal Kalamaha (who’s no stranger to accepting a challenge) and Jason Deiter ( who’s not shy about creating one) overcame some cold frigid weather and a blistering wind to participate in this years annual Turkey Tag-a-long 5k run in Howard Lake Minnesota. It was one of those ” if you do it I’ll do it to” scenarios that got both men out on the course and across the finish line. While it may have been Kendal’s 1st official 5K race, he is no stranger to running long distances. Kendal has been an avid runner for the past 2 years often waking at 4 AM to put in as many as 4-5 miles/day before leaving for the office. Jason is no rookie to competition himself having been an avid distance runner and a
local legend a few years back. At the end of the day, Kendal finished with an impressive 25:26:5 time. Kendal’s effort for 5K was good enough to earn him a 10th place finish in a field of over 120 runners . Jason’s 31:22:00 time was good enough to beat over half the field and a 40th place finish. Not bad for going right from the couch to the starting line in frigid conditions. When Jason and Kendal aren
‘t running races or taking on challenges they can be found working at SJF Material Handling in Winsted, MN. There Jason , Kendal and 6 of their sales coworkers work with businesses nationwide who are looking for new & used material handling & warehouse equipment…or at least.. when they are not taunting each other over the next new challenge.
After an exhaustive search, SJF Material Handling (Winsted, MN) has hired three new solutions specialists (sales staff). These three are stepping into some pretty big shoes that were recently vacated by a couple of other very prolific sales staff. We sincerely wish them all the best and are looking forward to seeing what new skills and talents they can add to our growing family at SJF.
