Albany, NY, Dec. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The 24-Hour CDPHP Treadmill Challenge was a huge success, raising $5,000 for a local not-for-profit that serves at-risk families and children.
Now in its third year, the 24-Hour CDPHP Treadmill Challenge involved more than 90 runners, who collectively burned more than 25,000 calories and ran nearly 2,200 miles.
CDPHP employees organized the Treadmill Challenge as a fundraiser for Family and Child Service of Schenectady, whose mission is to enrich and enhance the lives of vulnerable individuals and families by providing highly personalized in-home and community-based services.
New this year, CDPHP employees were joined by a group of celebrity guest runners, who generously gave their time and energy to the cause. The celebrity guest runners included: Benita Zahn and Jim Kambrich from WNYT-NewsChannel 13; Lydia Kulbida and Trishna Begam from WTEN; Brian Cody and Matty Jeff from WGNA; along with CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge champions, Karen Bertasso and Chuck Terry.
The money raised by the 24-Hour CDPHP Treadmill Challenge will help to transform Family and Child Service of Schenectady’s Homemaker Program into a fully-certified Licensed Home Care Service Agency (LHCSA) by the New York State Department of Health. This will allow the organization to deliver a full range of in-home, personal care services.
Established in 1984, CDPHP is a physician-founded, member-focused and community-based not-for-profit health plan that offers high-quality affordable health insurance plans to members in 26 counties throughout New York. CDPHP is also on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
