Cooper-Hewitt staff rise to the challenge

For several years, The Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum has participated in the JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge, a 3.5 mile race through Central Park in New York meant to promote fitness and team-building. This year marks the 33rd Corporate Challenge with races in 12 cities on six continents. The race is held after work on a business day and requires that companies register at least four entrants. Two races were held in New York this year with 15,000 runners each night. The Cooper-Hewitt team raced on June 10.
