(15 June 2012) The collective training of the past few weeks truly paid off. In the course of the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge in Frankfurt on the Main yesterday, all of the ten team members of AuPairWorld successfully reached their goal. Michael Kutscher, one of the team members, gave his top performance on the 3.5 miles route. He was among the top 50 (18 min) of the 68,000 participants. "I have improved my running speed compared to last year. I am glad that I am among the top 50 participants“, Michael Kutscher confirms.
AuPairWorld has participated in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge for the second year in a row. In 2011, the company started off with a team of 5 members. In this context, the race is important to AuPairWorld not only in terms of physical performance. The participants value the team spirit, collegiality and, above all, the charitable purpose of the challenge, as the organizer donates 1.80 euros of each participant's entry fee to projects supporting young, handicapped athletes.
The J.P. Morgan race will not remain the only physical challenge for AuPairWorld in 2012. In September, four team members will be tackling the Oxfam Trailwalker. Together they wish to cover a distance of 100 kilometres in 30 hours at the most. The trekking tour also serves a good cause: it supports the fight against oppression of women and girls.
