JP Morgan Corporate Challenge, Centennial Park

Tomorrow’s J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Centennial Park is the fifteenth such race in Centennial Park. While the ever-popular global race will attract up to 10,000 runners, this year there is a new, very special link that will benefit many more.

This year J.P. Morgan will make a donation on behalf of all participants to The Indigenous Marathon Project (IMP), which was founded by Marathon champion Rob de Castella.

What is the IMP?

The IMP is a non-profit organisation that uses marathon running to demonstrate the incredible capacity Indigenous Australian men and women have to achieve.

Following just a six month intensive training program, the group of Indigenous young people compete in the famous New York City Marathon and also complete a Certificate IV in Leisure and Health.  In the last four years 32 young Indigenous men and women have participated in the New York event as part of the IMP program.

Competing this year?

If you’re one of the many runners in this year’s fun run, don’t forget to take a photo at the Centennial Parklands Polaroid Frame and share it with us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. Use #centennialparklands when you post!
