J.P. MORGAN CORPORATE CHALLENGE - WE ARE AT THE START AGAIN
This year we will once again be running the short 5.6 km route to the finish together. Even though the fastest runners finished within 15 minutes, the PWT team did not focus on performance, but on team spirit and the pleasure of running together.
MENS SANA IN CORPORE SANO
According to a study by the World Health Organisation (WHO), 42.2 percent of Germans do not get enough exercise. At PWT, we know that sport is good for you. Sport promotes and improves health and helps you to concentrate better at work. And what's better than doing sport with company? That we can still enjoy the third half together.
WE ARE ALL EQUAL WHEN WE RUN
Sport makes it possible to mix population groups with different origins, genders, ages or social statuses and to build or strengthen relationships. Sport brings people together in places where they might not have met and connects people who might never have spoken to each other.
Whether young or old, male or female, no matter what position the employee holds, the mixed PWT team runs with them!
WHAT IS THE J.P. MORGAN CORPORATE CHALLENGE
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge is a worldwide company run that takes place annually in 16 cities, including London, New York and Buenos Aires.
The first Frankfurt run took place in 1993 with 527 runners from 57 companies. Since then, this sporting event has grown bigger and bigger. With more than 60,000 participants, Frankfurt is the largest company run in the J.P. Morgan Challenge, which is organised in 16 cities. It is also the race with the most participants in Hesse. Every year in June, over 60,000 runners from around 2,280 companies gather in Frankfurt.
THE FRANKFURT SPORTING EVENT IS COMMITTED TO DISABLED SPORTS FOUNDATIONS
PWT fully supports the values of the J.P. Morgan Run as part of the Corporate Challenge for disabled sports in Germany. Every runner contributes € 2.00 from the entry fee to the donation to the German Sports Aid Foundation and the German Disabled Sports Youth. This year, the organiser of the company run donated a sum of 200,000 US dollars (€186,642) to the German Sports Aid Foundation and the German Disabled Sports Youth shortly before the starting signal.
