ROCHESTER, May 6, 2015 — The 25th J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® in Rochester – Monroe County’s annual celebration of employee camaraderie and teamwork – will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Rochester

J.P. Morgan will make a donation on behalf of the more than 10,000 entrants from 375 companies expected to participate on Tuesday, May 26 at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Rochester (BBBS) has been making a real difference in the lives of children for more than 35 years. BBBS helps children realize their potential and build their futures, thereby strengthening our communities. 

BBBS believes that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Rochester makes meaningful, professionally supported matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”). Pairing a child with a mentor in the Rochester community assures that child will succeed in school, go on to graduate and realize their dreams. 

There are over 200 youth waiting to be matched with mentors in Rochester. The support from J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge will help to recruit, screen, train and support new mentors for the young children on our waiting list.  The funds assure BBBS can provide safe, supported relationships to youth to assure a brighter future.  

Charitable giving is an important component of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series, with J.P. Morgan making locally-designated donations at each event. Approximately $2M total has been donated to not-for-profit organizations in Corporate Challenge markets over the past three Series years.

Registration for the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Rochester closes this Friday, May 8.  Please visit our event details page for other key information and deadlines.
