 Corporate Challenge Team Welcomes Participants

SUNY Cortland’s Corporate Challenge team needs faculty and staff members who enjoy good food, warm weather and the company of their work friends. There are no speed or fitness requirements for the all-inclusive running and walking event, which takes place Tuesday, June 17, in Syracuse, N.Y.

The 2014 J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge again offers a 3.5-mile course along Onondaga Lake Parkway for walkers and runners alike. The College covers the majority of the cost, but employees are asked to pay a $15 registration fee.

Registration includes a SUNY Cortland team shirt, post-race food catered by Murphy’s Complete Catering, round-trip transportation from Cortland and all event fees.

“Anyone who has participated in the past knows how much fun it is,” said Christopher Tucker, the College’s property control manager and a team captain. “It’s just a unique, laid-back way to catch up with co-workers and possibly even meet some new ones.”

Online registration must be completed by noon on Friday, May 16, and payment — preferably by check and made payable to SUNY Cortland — should be turned in to Tucker or Kerry Mincher in the College’s Purchasing Office, located in Miller Building. Payment can be made after online registration.

The Corporate Challenge is Central New York’s largest fitness event and welcomes more than 6,000 runners and walkers annually. SUNY Cortland’s team, which includes scores of employees of all ability levels, has maintained a strong presence at the event each year.

Rules state that only employees can represent a company.
