Nov 05, 2013
The third running of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Shanghai this October included more than 7,200 participants from 234 companies, representing more than 80 percent growth in size of the event from its 2011 debut. The popularity of the event necessitated a move to more spacious race course and staging area within the Xuhui Riverside area.
Along with promoting teamwork and company camaraderie, this year’s race benefitted Right To Play China, which promotes the development of teenagers affected by poverty and teenagers in difficult situations through sport and play activities.
This year marked the 37th anniversary of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series and included 13 races across seven countries. The donation to Right to Play China was part of the $700,000US investment J.P. Morgan made to Corporate Challenge cities in 2013.
