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.
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.
