Calling all corporate competitors!
Centennial Park is set to come alive on 11 November when the 15th annual J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge welcomes thousands of runners in the iconic corporate event.
More than 8,000 corporate runners are expected to participate in the 5.6km event that attracted runners from 355 companies in 2014.
For the second year in a row, the IMF has been chosen as the beneficiary of the event.
Head of Communications at J.P. Morgan, Andrew Donohoe, said the organisation was committed to supporting the goals and vision of the IMF.
“As our race beneficiary, The Indigenous Marathon Foundation (IMF) is a logical fit for the Sydney J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge.
“We support its use of marathon running as means to demonstrate and celebrate Indigenous resilience and achievement.
“We’re expecting more than 8,000 participants in this year’s Sydney race on November 11 and on their behalf, we are pleased to play a small role in IMF’s work in the community,” said Rob Priestley, CEO Australia and New Zealand, ASEAN, J.P. Morgan.
Team UGL, organised by UGL’s National Workforce Planning Coordinator, Shahira Bryant, has engaged more than 50 of its employees to fundraise for IMF, setting the ambitious goal of raising a minimum of $10,000.
“At UGL we have a number of different business units, the team that is entering is made up of staff from all business units making this a combined UGL team effort.
“As a company, we are very conscientious about our Indigenous engagement across our projects nationally, so what better way to further show our support by participating in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge which in turn raises money for the IMF.
“We have a confirmed team of 50! We are all training weekly, all actively doing our bit to hit our target donation amount and all excited to run/walk/jog in the event as a team!,” she said.
Why not set up a team, put out a friendly challenge to your industry colleagues and see which team can claim bragging rights as the fastest across the line?
