The Corporate Challenge started 37 years ago when 50 companies gathered in Central Park, New York to race. Today, the race has become a worldwide event, is held in cities such as Singapore, Johannesburg, and yes, Rochester, New York. Ed Soback, Raymond Halter, Bryan Fritz, Randy “Bacon” Bratcher, Kim Moriarty, Debbie Willett, and Gael Orr all participated in the corporate challenge at Rochester Institute of Technology. The Corporate Challenge sends a message that physical fitness is important. Participating companies use the races as a platform to promote fitness in the work place.
