Buffalo, New York (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
William Mattar and the employees of William Mattar Law Offices are participating in the annual Buffalo JP Morgan Corporate Challenge for the third consecutive year. The 3.5 mile run and after party are scheduled to take place on June 6th at Delaware Park in Buffalo.
There will be 39 participants from William Mattar Law Offices involved in the run this year. They hope to improve their overall run time from last year while still maintaining the fun atmosphere that brings them back time after time. According to past participants, the after party event which includes all of the companies that are involved is quite the sight to see. In past years the high energy corporate event has been spotted with team signs and large event balloons.
This year is the 37th annual Corporate Challenge event; the first started in New York City in 1977. JP Morgan originally started the event after successfully sponsoring the New York City marathon. They wanted to create a race for the business community that busy corporate employees would have time to train for. This led to the development of the 3.5 mile run used for the event. Last year the race was held on 5 continents and had 8,024 different companies participate. To embrace the spirit of competition in the business world, several contests can be entered by participants. Most of them involve team and individual race times. There is a team t-shirt design contest as well. The winners of each competition are awarded $1,000 to a charity of their choice.
