On June 26, 2015, Greenpac, Cascades Containerboard Packaging Niagara Falls and Cascades Containerboard Packaging Lancaster competed in the 35th annual J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge in Buffalo, NY. A crowd of 12,375 runners and walkers from 396 companies took on the 3.5 mile race to benefit two widely-respected non-profit organizations in the community — Kevin Guest House and The Angel Fund at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Kevin Guest House is the nation’s first hospital hospitality house, offering a safe, warm, secure respite for patients and their loved ones. The Angel Fund provides funds to Roswell Park patients that assist in travel to appointments, meals, gas, lodging and sometimes co-pays for qualifying low-income patients.
The Corporate Challenge is the perfect opportunity for employees to get involved and bring the WNY mills and box plant closer together. “It’s great to see our people from the different locations bond and socialize at one event,” said Kenny James-Bergeron, Cascades Containerboard Packaging Controller Succession Team, who completed the race with an impressive time of 26 minutes 24 seconds, only second to Dave Moran.
