LMC staff participated in its first outside corporate event since COVID-19 in the JPMorgan Corporate Challenge 5K Run on June 2nd, 2022.
The JPMorgan Corporate Challenge is the world’s largest corporate running event. Each year, events take place in 15 locations including New York City, across eight countries and six continents with one mission: to serve as a catalyst between work and wellness. The Series offers companies opportunities to bond over a shared experience powered by fitness, friendly competition, food, and fun. From runners to walkers, from entry-level workers to seasoned employees, and from large corporations to start-ups – everyone is welcome.
The beneficiary for the 2022 Corporate Challenge was once again the Central Park Conservancy, the manager of Central Park. JPMorgan Chase will celebrate the Corporate Challenge through a donation that supports the Conservancy’s mission to restore, manage and enhance Central Park.
Given the business-to-business nature of the event, companies participate by creating Company Teams and designating team captains. LMC’s team captains, Lourdes M. Salzmann, Senior Accountant and Gus A. Molina, CPA, Audit Supervisor, organized the firm’s participation in the challenge by serving as the primary points of contact, recruiting staff to participate in the challenge, and planning the day of the run.
Although the day started with rain, it cleared up in time for the event. Our employees enjoyed participating as a team and had a fun time bonding outside of the office.
“Rain or shine, WE DID IT! I’m proud of everyone that participated in this challenge. Everyone seemed like they really enjoyed it and I’m glad we had the opportunity to join as a firm. It’s amazing to see how much the firm has grown within 10 years,” said Lourdes Salzmann.
This was not only LMC’s first corporate event since COVID-19 but LMC’s first participation in the JPMorgan Challenge, since 2012! To the left is a group picture of the (smaller) team who ran in the race almost 10 years ago.
LMC looks forward to next year’s JPMorgan Challenge and also more firm events for our team to enjoy and participate in.
