TriCore Solutions to Participate In J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge
Every year J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. sponsors and coordinates one of the largest corporate fund raising events in the world: The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series. 2013 marks the 37th annual running of this event and, as it has for the past 30 years, Boston will once again be one of the most popular stops on the 13-city race schedule.
On Thursday, June 20th a team of 15 runners from TriCore Solutions will gather on Boston Common to compete against entrants from over 500 other companies in the greater Boston area on the 3.5 mile course. For the 4th year in a row TriCore Solutions has registered a group of participants to help Boston reach its full capacity of 12,000 runners, a feat that the city has now achieved for the 19th consecutive year!
TriCore Solutions was pleased to learn that in light of the recent Marathon Day tragedy that shocked Boston, The J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation announced that they will donate ALL entry fees from the Boston race – totaling more than $500,000 – to One Fund Boston, an organization established to provide financial assistance to the families most effected by the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15th.
The J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge is a terrific event of which TriCore Solutions is proud to take part. It helps us develop relationships with other local businesses, but more importantly allows us to support a great cause in the One Fund Boston.
