Who says engineering and sports don’t mix? Not us! On Thursday, May 23rd members from Primera joined over 28,000 runners at the annual J.P.Morgan Corporate Challenge in downtown Chicago. By far, our favorite running event of the year, the Corporate Challenge is one of the largest single-night running events in the country and clocked in over 28,000 participants from 687 companies this year.
As Chair of Primera’s Wellness Committee, Human Resources Director Kendahle Artis understands the advantages of keeping employees healthy, which is why we integrate programs and activities like the Corporate
Challenge into our company structure. “Primera has participated in this annual event for nearly 10 years now, and each year our group keeps growing. It improves employee morale and motivation and supports improved health behaviors within our firm.”
The best part of the Corporate Challenge is that not only does it feed into our wellness (and fun) efforts, it also offers an element of giving back to our communities. J.P.Morgan donates a portion of the funds raised to Chicago Cares, the largest volunteer organization in Chicago. This money compounds itself as it supports an organization whose mission is to build a stronger, more unified Chicago through volunteerism. Primera is proud to support and be associated with firms and organizations who have a similar commitment to fostering our local communities.
