More than 27,000 runners and walkers, including a team of eight Modagrafics employees, participated in the 3.5-mile Chicago Corporate Challenge on May 24.
The annual event was held on a beautifully warm evening in Grant Park, not far from the light breezes of Lake Michigan. As part of the Modagrafics fitness challenge for employees, the event continued a company led program that helps individuals lose weight, increase their physical activity and make healthier decisions regarding exercise, food selection and other lifestyle choices.
