We all strive to better ourselves in some capacity. Improve my health. Travel more. Manage my money better. Go back to school. Learn a hobby. And the list goes on. As years come to a close and a new one begins, we formally resolve to obtain these goals. Then life gets busy and more often than not, these resolutions become less of a priority.
Join us as a source of renewed inspiration at this one-of-a-kind fair designed to help people get back on track. The goal is simple -- gather the most resources in one building for 7 hours to provide the tools for those in our community to achieve their resolutions before another year comes to an end. There’s still time!
What is the Corporate Challenge?
The J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge Series is a worldwide series of 3.5-mile (5.6-km) running events open to groups of employees from organizations within the local business sector. This year’s Buffalo area event (Delaware Park) will take place on Thursday, June 13th at 6:25 PM.
Participants may register only as part of a company team, and this year YourCare will once again be joining forces with one of our most valued partners in the Buffalo region, G-HEALTH Enterprises (a.k.a. GBUAHN & GBUACO) – the Greater Buffalo Accountable Healthcare Network & Greater Buffalo Accountable Care Organization.
This event is a platform to promote health and fitness, foster goodwill and camaraderie among employees, and show commitment to the community and best environmental practices. What a perfect event for the “City of Good Neighbors” to host! The Corporate Challenge strives to make a difference through a donation to a not-for-profit organization in each host city and is designed to be the world's greenest road race.
The YourCare – G-HEALTH Partnership
On September 20, 2016, YourCare and GBUACO announced the formation of a historic healthcare partnership – a pilot program where YourCare became the first health plan providing Medicaid and other government-sponsored health insurance programs to pair up with a Medicaid accountable care organization (GBUACO) in New York State. Since then, the YourCare – G-HEALTH relationship has grown in fascinating ways, and we expect to finalize a contract extension in the coming weeks to solidify our partnership for another three years!
Overall, YourCare and G-HEALTH share one major thing in common – each organization’s mission encompasses their commitments to providing access to quality healthcare, removing barriers caused by social determinants of health, and improving health and happiness within the communities we serve for years to come.
The Buffalo Corporate Challenge is a tradition – meaning, there will be hundreds of local businesses also taking part in this friendly competition, and it is a wonderful way for us to show our commitment to G-HEALTH as a partner, and Western New York, as a local health plan in the community!
