After two years of virtual participation, the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® Philadelphia returns to the city Oct. 6, 2022 with an in-person event benefiting Fairmount Park Conservancy.
Now in its 46th year, the Corporate Challenge has grown to become the world’s largest corporate sporting/social event. One part run and one part party, this event connects participants with their colleagues as they celebrate teamwork, camaraderie and the Corporate Challenge community worldwide.
Starting at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and traveling along the Schuylkill River and Kelly Drive, this 3.5-mile road race is the perfect opportunity to take in the beautiful vistas of East and West Fairmount Park while connecting with your colleagues. From runners to walkers, from entry-level workers to seasoned employees, and from large corporations to start-ups — everyone is welcome. Take the first step and register your company today.
Fairmount Park Conservancy has been the proud beneficiary of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Philadelphia for three years running. Although the Covid-19 pandemic prompted a pivot to virtual participation for the 2020 and 2021 events, FPC remained the beneficiary. Those monies allowed our organization to:
- Host 190 nature- and health-focused public events attended by 10,800 people
- Plant and distribute about 12,000 trees
- Coordinate 4,614 volunteers through our Love Your Park Service Days
- Produce more than 80,000 pounds of produce distributed to local communities in need
- Complete construction of the 4.5 mile Trolley Trail in West Fairmount Park
- Advance major capital projects in the Centennial District of West Fairmount Park and at FDR Park.
“We see a lot of parallels between the core values of this global running event and our own organization, especially when it comes to community, collaboration, wellness, and creating a place where everyone is welcome,” said Maura McCarthy, FPC’s Executive Director. “This partnership is also a great way to build awareness for our organization. The needs of Philadelphia’s parks far surpass the public resources available, and the support of members, donors, volunteers, and advocates makes our work possible.”
