Counsel Financial’s team of employees laced up their running shoes and took part in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge® in Buffalo, New York on June 14, 2018. The event, held annually to promote corporate teamwork and camaraderie in the local business community, drew a record field of over 14,000 employees from companies in the Western New York region. The local race is one of 13 worldwide, across seven countries and five continents.
Counsel Financial’s resident runners formed a team to compete and gathered many friends and family to come out to support the team as spectators. Team captain, Kim Gomlak, stated, “The Corporate Challenge is a great event for us, and it’s always fun to engage in some friendly competition. It’s become a tradition we look forward to year after year.” The company fosters a strong sense of teamwork, promotes staying active in and outside of the workplace and consistently demonstrates its commitment to volunteerism.
