JP Morgan Run 2016
For the past 7 years, MASECO has participated in the annual JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge 5K fun run. This year 14,500 employees from 400 different companies took part in the event at Battersea Park. With temperatures rising to over 30 degrees in the hours leading up to the race, the team were anxious but excited to take on the challenge given such soaring temperatures.
Twentyone MASECO team members took part in the run held on 20 July, with one of our new interns, Dan Keeley, breaking the MASECO record with a spectacular finish time of 23 minutes 20 seconds, despite having been invited to take part just the day before! The whole team made an outstanding effort, with everyone managing to complete the race in under an hour.
The event beneficiary for 2016, Age UK received a donation on behalf of all JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge entrants, and the money raised will be used to provide older people with vital companionship, advice and support.
MASECO is proud to have run and to have helped raise money for such a worthy cause. We look forward to taking part again next year.
