The NFTA takes the Corporate Challenge

The NFTA’s JP Morgan Corporate Challenge team put in a strong showing this year, with 32 athletes (and a few more back at the tent, making sure everything was either as warm or cold as it should be). Team captain Michael Moore was the top male with a 22 minutes 7 second time, while Emma Concannon was the top female with a 34 minutes 55 second time (she is the daughter of Carolyn Concannon, Administrative Assistant to the Director of Aviation). Nicely done.

An estimated total of 12,488 runners/walkers from 383 companies participated in the 3½ mile course beginning and ending in Delaware Park. The event raised funds for Say Yes Buffalo and Classroom Champions, both education-focused organizations. Congratulations to everyone.
