LBP employees participated in the 36th running of the Chicago version of the Corporate Challenge. The event attracted 27,777 entrants from 692 companies. This was the largest single-night crowd for any Corporate Challenge in the U.S., dating back to the Series’ 1977 origins in New York City. Chicago broke its record of 27,114, set in 2017.
Yolanda Godina was LBP’s company captain. She created the team and recruited participants to run or walk the 3.5 miles on May 24th. “This event was a wonderful way to promote health and fitness in the workplace and gather together for a great cause right here in our community,” noted Godina, Human Resource Generalist.
There was a first-time beneficiary, Chicago Cares, the largest volunteer organization in Chicago. J.P. Morgan will donate on behalf of all Corporate Challenge participants, assisting Chicago Cares with its 200 monthly volunteer projects and hundreds of corporate volunteer programs annually.
