Team Orange Competes at the 2023 Syracuse WorkForce Run (Photo Gallery)
On Tuesday, 173 University faculty and staff members participated in the Syracuse Workforce Run, formerly known as the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. The event brings together walkers, runners and rollers from workplaces around Syracuse for a night of friendly competition, fitness, food and camaraderie on a 5K course through Onondaga Lake Park.
For the second year running, the University was recognized for having the largest team from a single organization. Everyone’s favorite mascot, Otto, was there to cheer participants on and dole out plenty of high-fives. J. Cole Smith, dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS), once again served as team captain with staff from ECS helping to organize this year’s event, with support from the University’s Wellness Initiative.
Jon French, assistant teaching professor of chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences, took 3rd place in the all-male division with a time of 16 minutes, two seconds. Grace Sciera, marketing strategist in the Division of Marketing, completed the course in 21 minutes, 45 seconds, placing ninth in the all-female division.
Thank you to all who participated and the University hopes to see you again next year!
