CNY RPDB and SMTC Participate in Chase Corporate Challenge

The Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board (CNY RPDB) and the Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council (SMTC) teamed up to participate in the J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. Corporate Challenge on Tuesday, June 22.  The 3.5 mile course was held at the beautiful and historic Onondaga Lake Park with a total of 6,790 participants from 259 companies.

This is the first year that the CNY RPDB and the SMTC entered a team in the race, and our t-shirt design was selected as one of two winning entries! We will donate the $1,000 award from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation to the Food Bank of Central New York.

The energy and excitement of the event led to laughter and good spirits among the race participants, despite the sustained showers that resulted in a 72-minute rain delay. Event runners couldn’t have asked for a better ending as the sight of a faint rainbow and a beautiful sunset—accompanied by the sound of cheers and applause—welcomed them across the finish line.
