Chase Corporate Challenge 2012

The NFTA’s Chase Corporate Challenge team put in a strong showing this year, with 35 athletes (and a few more back at the tent, making sure everything was either as warm or cold as it should be.) Michael Moore led the pack with a 20 minutes 50 second time. Nicely done. Congratulations to everyone.
