Calling All Area Businesses! Registration Now Open for the 2023 CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge

2023 Workforce Team Challenge

ALBANY, N.Y. – February 15, 2023 – CDPHP and the Hudson-Mohawk Road Runners Club (HMRRC) are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge, a 3.5-mile road race starting and ending on Madison Avenue in downtown Albany near the Empire State Plaza. This year’s race is set for Thursday, May 18, 2023, at 6:25 p.m. The registration fee is $30 for in-person or virtual participants. HMRRC will be offering a free 90-day membership to all registered participants.

Race organizers invite businesses to start spreading the word to employees about registration. This event is a perfect opportunity to bring remote or hybrid workforces together for some healthy and friendly competition!

Local not-for-profit Trinity Community Center (soon to be renamed Open Table Community Center) in Rotterdam will receive important funds from this year’s race. The “three legs” of the open table, all crosscut by a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, are food security; mental health and wellbeing; and arts, culture, and self-expression.

Trinity Community Center’s Bread of Life Food Pantry currently operates three times per month. With financial support from the 2023 CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge, the pantry will seek to operate weekly as demand has significantly increased because of skyrocketing food prices. While poverty rates in Rotterdam are relatively low, the United Way's 2020 ALICE Report (Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed) indicates 39 percent of residents are below the ALICE threshold and 38.4 percent of children in neighborhood schools receive free/reduced meals.

Teams and individuals are encouraged to make contributions to this important initiative at the time of registration.

The CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge is organized by and serves as a significant fundraiser for the HMRRC. In addition to raising funds for local charities, the race also helps to fund HMRRCs college scholarships, grants, and free race programs for local youth.

Registration at the $30 entry fee will end on May 1. If the race hasn’t reached its registration cap, registration may be extended at a higher rate.
