The Corporate Challenge mission of promoting health and camaraderie in the workplace is important to teams such as the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Ford Foundation, just as it was for the 50 teams and 200 runners who assembled in Central Park 37 years ago for the first 3.5-mile event in Central Park. That modest start has led to 600 companies and 30,000 total entrants that will be on the West Drive starting line June 4 and 5.
