SYRACUSE, NY: On May 21st, 2019 ten Ichor employees participated in the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge at Onondaga Lake Park. The Ichor team ran 3.5 miles (5.6km) alongside many other local companies in order to raise money for the non-profit organization, Syracuse Stage, while encouraging health and fitness in the workplace, camaraderie amongst employees, and promoting an overall environmentally friendly lifestyle. At this event, Jacob McAndrew, Operations Manager of Cell Biology at Ichor Therapeutics, Inc., placed 6th out of 5,000 participants, with a time of 19:01.
The proceeds from this race were used to sponsor this and other J.P. Morgan charity events, as well as supporting the local Syracuse Stage. Syracuse Stage is a non-profit professional theatre company in association with Syracuse University’s drama department. They engage students by bringing together the art of theatre from talented young scholars with the community of Central New York. This event was further sponsored by the KIND Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to charitable causes that spread kindness and fight hunger. Together, the communal and organizational donations help to create and fund these events that promote wellness of local businesses and the overarching community.
