Merchants Insurance Group Participates in the 2022 JP Morgan Corporate Challenge

J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Buffalo

Merchants' Buffalo colleagues before the Corporate Challenge

On Thursday, June 16, 2022, the highly anticipated J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge made its return to Buffalo! Merchants Insurance Group colleagues at our corporate office joined professionals from all over the Buffalo region to run, jog, and walk the 3.5-mile course.

The race began at 6:25pm in Delaware Park, taking participants through Buffalo’s beautiful Parkside neighborhood on a sunny and warm evening. This year’s race was extra special — due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this was the first Corporate Challenge since 2019! After the race, colleagues enjoyed a catered dinner by Buffalo’s Best Catering By Kim in Delaware Park.

Congratulations to all colleagues who participated! Special thanks to Analytics & Data Reporting Supervisor Rob Tromans, our Merchants Team Captain for this year’s Challenge. To view the leaderboard for this year’s race, click here.
