On July 12th, 8 members of the Crestwood Advisors team took part in the annual J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge. The Corporate Challenge is a three and a half mile run that begins in the Boston Common and goes through Kenmore Square and other parts of the city.
The race benefits the J.P. Morgan Chase Foundation, which makes locally-designated donations at each of their 13 global events sites. In Boston, the 2012 beneficiaries were the Emerald Necklace Conservancy and Horizons for Homeless Children. Funds provided to Emerald Necklace Conservancy will support its Youth Leadership Program and Green Team, employing up to 50 urban youths to work on restoration projects in backyard parks. Horizons for Homeless Children is directing its donation to provide quality early education and care to 300 young children in Boston who have experienced the trauma of homelessness.
The Crestwood Advisors team had a great time representing one of the 629 participating companies in this year’s sellout event, which had over 12,000 individual participants. Crestwood is proud to support the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge and its efforts to give back to the community.
