J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge
Today and for the 3rd time now I fire the starting gun for the traditional J. P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge. This road footrace through downtown Frankfurt am Main is organised by J. P. Morgan with an intended focus on promoting fitness in the workplace. In addition the J. P. Morgan Chase Foundation makes charitable donations proportional to the numbers of participants.
This time almost 72.000 participants collect a total amount of 258.000 € for charity. The Katarina Witt Foundation http://www.katarina-witt-stiftung.de receives a part of this amount to support children and teenagers with disabilities.
This year it is again a fun and hilarious event and I let myself get carried away into committing to take an active part in the next chase in 2015. This will be a great motivation to stay fit and keep running one mile or another ;-)
