Presented by Marcum LLP, the 3.5-mile event benefits the Children’s Medical Fund of New York, Long Island Cares/the Harry Chapin Food Book, the Long Island Children’s Museum, and the Nassau County SPCA. This year’s fundraising results will be announced in the fall. The Marcum Workplace Challenge has raised more than $800,000 for charity since 2006.

“It was an especially great event this year,” said Carolyn Mazzenga, Marcum’s office managing partner in Melville. “We had more sponsors than ever before, the company turn-out was excellent, the crowd was very upbeat, and the weather was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better night.”
Mindy Davidson, race director for the Greater Long Island Running Club, said, “After 13 years, the Marcum Workplace Challenge still grows every year, bringing more companies and sponsors out for the fun, raising more funds for charity, and involving more volunteers. It is not only a great event, it is a great example of Long Island community spirit.”
