[fa icon="calendar'] Tue, Sep 19, 2017 / by Emily Ysaguirre

The 2017 Marcum Workplace Challenge was a huge success! The Marcum Challenge was a 3.5-mile run/walk for charity and Long Island’s largest office picnic.

The EtQ Fun Committee put together a great picnic for our employees who came to participate in the run/walk. We had a handful of team members competing in the race and invited friends and family to come join us!

This year, the event attracted more than 12,000 participants from 195 corporate teams and we are proud to have been one of them. Since the tradition began, the Marcum Challenge has raised more than $700,000 for charity beneficiaries including the Long Island Children’s Museum (LICM), Children’s Medical Fund of New York, Long Island Cares, Inc – The Harry Chapin Food Bank and the Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
