Community Foundation Staff Take the “Challenge”!

JP Morgan Corporate Challenge 2014Community Foundation staff members braved the 85 degree heat yesterday to participate in the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge 5K walk/run! Everyone did a great job, but we have to give a special shout out to our running stars:

Olive Sephuma, Director, Community Grantmaking: 29:42

Myia Knapp, Finance Assistant: 31:49

Proceeds from this year’s Corporate Challenge will be donated to the Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection. Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection is a nationally recognized youth-development program that for nearly three decades has helped at-risk students stay in school and successfully graduate while providing invaluable part-time work experience and job skills to help prepare them for life after graduation. Hillside connects students to a full-time school-based youth advocate, employment training, college preparation support and tutoring services, while helping youth stay engaged in the classroom earning their high school diplomas.

We all had a great time and were honored to participate for the benefit of this worthy cause.JP Morgan Corporate Challenge 2014

We want to send a special thank  you to our friends at The Bonadio Group for sharing their tent space (and a yummy after-race dinner!) with our participants.

Now that we are fully hydrated again, it is time to start training for next year!
