CordenPharma & Weylchem participated in the 2016 J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge, which took place June 15th in Frankfurt, Germany. 

CordenPharma and Weylchem were among a total of 68,119 entrants from 2,633 corporations for this 24th J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge, making it one of the largest road races in the world.

This year a donation of €245,500 ($276,000) was made to the German Sport Aid Foundation which, for the 10th consecutive year, was the beneficiary partner. The funds will be used for meaningful and sustainable support of sports programs for young individuals with disabilities across Germany.

"The donation from the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge is primarily used to introduce young individuals with a disability to sports in order to subsequently enrich their personal lifestyle," explained Dr. Michael Ilgner, chairman of the board of the German Sport Aid Foundation. "Over the period of our 10-year partnership with the event, more than 30 projects for over 7,000 young individuals with disabilities have been supported."

Afterwards, CordenPharma and Weylchem joined in a tent near the river Main > a sense of participation and team spirit were felt by all.
