WORKFORCE Team Challange May 19, 2016

Thursday, May 19, 2016

The CDPHP® Workforce Team Challenge 3.5-mile race will take place on Thursday, May 19 at 6:25 p.m. at the Empire State Plaza in Albany. Each year thousands of runners, walkers, and volunteers from hundreds of organizations throughout the area gather with their co-workers to take part in the largest annual road race in the Capital Region. Registration will be available starting on Monday, February 8.

The event is organized by, and serves as the major fundraiser for, the Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club (HMRRC). The funds raised help underwrite many of HMRRC’s activities and services, including college scholarships, grants, running clinics, and the Just Run® Program that encourages grade school children to run for exercise and fun. CDPHP is now in its seventh year as the primary sponsor of this event.  Each year, in conjunction with the race, HMRRC and CDPHP select one or more charities of choice, each of which receives a donation from CDPHP, as well as direct contributions from race participants.  This year’s awardees will be announced on or before Sunday, January 31.
