On May 18th, over 25 Primera team members took to the streets of downtown Chicago as a part of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. As the world’s largest corporate running event, the Corporate Challenge is a 3.5-mile race encouraging fitness, friendly competition, and fun. Hundreds of teams from various companies across all industries came together to complete the race and spend quality time outside of work. After crossing the finish line, teams celebrated over food, beverages, and live entertainment – luckily it was a beautiful evening in Chicago! This was Primera’s largest showing at the race since pre-pandemic times and we were proud to join the over 10,000 finishers on the nearly 50-year-old event.
The best part about the race? It was all for a good cause! Each year, the Corporate Challenge selects a beneficiary that receives a portion of the race proceeds. This year, J.P. Morgan was proud to support UCAN, a social services agency that helps build strong youth and families through compassionate healing, education, and empowerment. UCAN serves as a sanctuary for youth who have suffered trauma and neglect and provides consistent, relevant support and healing. By creating opportunities and providing services, UCAN empowers children and young adults and fosters them to become impactful future leaders. Learn more here.
Congratulations to our team members, and everyone who competed in this year’s event! Final race results can be found here.
