On June 13th more than 63,000 participants ran or walked 3.5 miles between towering skyscrapers while enjoying the beautiful Frankfurt skyline at the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. Nearly 100 Celanese employees ran for a good cause under the “We are the CHEMpions” motto. Participants represented 5 Celanese locations, including Kaiserslautern, Amsterdam, Budapest, Sulzbach and Frankfurt. After the run, everyone met together to enjoy the great weather with a bratwurst washed down by a cool beverage to celebrate.
It was a great evening full of team spirit, collaboration, health and charity. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Deutsche Sporthilfe Foundation and the Deutsche Behindertensportjugend, a foundation that develops sports for youth challenged with a disability.
A big thanks to all runners, volunteers and fans for a successful evening – we are the CHEMpions!
