JP Morgan Corporate Challenge
The JP Morgan Corporate Challenge is the worlds largest corporate running event, taking place in fifteen locations across eight countries and six continents with the goal of bridging the gap “between work and wellness.” Companies both small and large are welcome to participate in the 3.6-mile race, and this year Lilker employees leapt at the chance to sign up for the challenge.
We’re incredibly proud to recognize the 2023 team of: Samana Shakya, Peter Beneski, Gabriella Fernandez, Giovanni DelCid, Lourdes Ng, Chase Robina, Sophia Tampakis, Eric Chan, Asrar Wasay, Kevin Chen and David Alperin.
In the weeks leading up to the event, Lilker Captain, Samana, organized several training sessions and practice runs for her coworkers. Their determination and shared interest in athleticism and competition, brought them to race day.
New Yorkers aren’t strangers to large scale running events, and race day was no different as bystanders gathered throughout Central Park on May 31st to watch their friends, families and coworkers cross the finish line. Lilker emphasizes a strong sense of teamwork, community, and cooperation in and out of the office, and our company was proud to see those same values on display before, during and after the race.
Congratulations to everyone and every company that participated. We already can’t wait to start training for next year!
