Registration open for 25th annual event
benefiting Camp Harbor View
BOSTON, April 7, 2008 – To run a good time at the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge, you have to train properly. You also need to act fast.
Registration is now open for the 25th running of the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge® in Boston, scheduled for Thursday, June 26, 2008 with a 7:15 p.m. start on the Boston Common. This 3.5-mile race – the largest held entirely within city limits – has sold-out for 13 consecutive years and will again in 2008. Please act now to secure your spot.
The Corporate Challenge in Boston has a firm capacity of 12,000, and entries will be collected online exclusively on a first-come, first-served basis. Entry fee is $35 per person and all entries must be part of a corporate team, with a minimum of four and no maximum.
Participants at this year's Corporate Challenge will be helping to provide a true summer camp experience to children in some of Boston 's at-risk neighborhoods. The JPMorgan Chase Foundation will make a donation in connection with the Corporate Challenge to Camp Harbor View, in partnership with the City of Boston and Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston.
Camp Harbor View's goal is to offer children ages 11-to-14 the opportunity to leave the city during the day and participate in a four-week summer camp program. In addition to offering the traditional activities that summer camp is known for -- hiking, arts and crafts, swimming -- Camp Harbor View also includes programs that strive to build children's academic and leadership strengths.
The capacity crowd of 12,000 will also be teaming up with JPMorgan Chase & Co. for a greener tomorrow. The Corporate Challenge will introduce a variety of tactics designed to lessen the consumption of energy and paper resources. Our goal is to ultimately have the “greenest” road race in the world and in the coming weeks we'll provide you with understandable measurements of carbon emissions saved by our combined efforts. You will be surprised how the smallest action – such as registering for this event online rather than with paper forms – makes such a big difference.
And, of course, there is keen competition at the Corporate Challenge. A total of 15 companies (five each in the men's, women's and mixed divisions) will earn an invitation to the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge Championship, to be held Saturday, October 4, in New York City. Boston teams traditionally do very well in this six-country celebration of corporate fitness, with General Electric finishing fourth overall among women's teams in 2007, Raytheon fifth in the men's division and Pioneer Investments 13th in mixed team competition.
