As Chicagoland’s leading provider of physical and occupational therapy, Athletico is committed to educating the public about the importance of health and fitness. One of the ways our company encourages employees to live a healthy lifestyle is by participating in the annual J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge, which is a 3.5 mile run/walk that celebrates corporate teamwork, camaraderie and community!
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge takes place in several cities across the globe. This year, 125 Athletico team members took on the 2019 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Chicago. Our staff also submitted songs ahead of the event to contribute to a group playlist to listen to during the event. Listen to the Athletico Corporate Challenge playlist here.
A staple of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Chicago is its partnership with a worthy beneficiary. In celebration of the Corporate Challenge, J.P. Morgan made a donation to Chicago Cares, an organization that mobilizes volunteers to build a stronger, more unified Chicago. All Athletico participants, from our CEO Mark Kaufman to our clinicians and Resource Center employees, were proud to be a part of this event supporting the local community.
“Our employees look forward to participating in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge every year. It is a great opportunity for everyone to get outside of the clinic and/or office for a fun and healthy activity that allows us to come together as a team. I was happy to be at this year’s event, which had a great turnout of more than 100 Athletico team members coming out to support the event.” – Mark Kaufman, CEO/President of Athletico
