Corporate Challenge in Sydney
SYDNEY, September 25, 2009 — !Football United! has been named the beneficiary of this year's J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Sydney. The donation will largely benefit the football program at Granville South High School, among other initiatives.
The annual 5.6-kilometre team road race is scheduled for Wednesday 11 November with an expected crowd of more than 8,000 participants. J.P. Morgan will make a donation for each entry to !Football United!.
Granville South High School (GSHS) is J.P. Morgan's partner school in Sydney and the Corporate Challenge donation will allow !Football United! to provide the school with an empowerment and life-skills development program. It will be aligned with Granville South's curriculum areas, including training Granville South football teams for regional and state competitions.
