Emerald Necklace Conservancy
named Boston beneficiary
BOSTON, April 12, 2011 – The 28th annual J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® in Boston will benefit the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, the back yard for Boston city dwellers and a destination for more than one million visitors and residents each year.
Stretching from the Back Bay to Dorchester, the Emerald Necklace features six parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted — the Arnold Arboretum, Back Bay Fens, Franklin Park, Jamaica Pond, Olmsted Park and the Riverway.
The JPMorgan Chase Foundation, on behalf of the Corporate Challenge, will make a donation to the Emerald Necklace Conservancy. The race is scheduled for Thursday, June 2, starting at 7:15 p.m. in Boston’s Back Bay.
The Emerald Necklace Conservancy was created to protect, restore, maintain and promote the landscape, waterways and parkways of the Emerald Necklace park system as special places for people to visit and enjoy. Conservancy programs focus on restoration and maintenance, public education, volunteerism, and improvement of public access.
The donation to the Conservancy continues the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge’s long-standing tradition of supporting charities and institutions that contribute to an overall quality of life in the communities served by JPMorgan Chase. In 2011, the Series will donate more than $600,000 to charities and organizations in host cities around the world.
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Boston has reached a full capacity of 12,000 entrants the past 16 years and this year’s race is filling fast. Visit the registration page today to reserve spots for your company today.
