For the second consecutive year, Energi will participate as a team sponsor in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Boston, Massachusetts. More than 40 Energi employees from Energi’s Peabody headquarters will be participating in the 3.5-mile race, doubling Energi’s participation in the 2012 event.
“The increased level of participation in the Challenge this year shows how much Energi and its employees care about our communities and neighbors. In the wake of the tragic events at the Boston Marathon, we salute J.P. Morgan for contributing all entry fees to The One Fund. This gesture enhances the meaning of this event and exemplifies the unity across the business community.“ Brian K. McCarthy – CEO/President, Energi
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge is one of the largest races in the city of Boston, with more than 12,000 runners registered for the 3.5-mile race. J.P. Morgan will contribute all entry fees, totaling more than $500,000, to One Fund Boston, a central organization established by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino to provide financial assistance to the families most affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy.
Energi has also entered the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series T-Shirt Contest. Building off their contest-winning design from 2012, the Energi Team created t-shirts that memorialize the Boston Marathon’s events with an “Energi Runs 4 Boston” theme, and will wear the shirts on the day of the race. The shirts will be available for sale on the Energi Store, a newly launched online store managed by Fusion LLC, and proceeds from t-shirt sales will be directly donated to the Boston One Fund. Members of the Energi network can also purchase company branded clothing apparel, accessories and more through the Store.
“Energi employees are excited to join the Massachusetts business community for the second consecutive year. The JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge is more meaningful for the employees running and exemplifies the unity amongst the community, which is truly strong in wake of the events at the Boston Marathon.” Mary Beth Heffernan – Vice President of Human Resources, Energi
