Update: Registration has closed. Sponsored by NYU Human Resources and its LiveSmart wellness program, the New York University community will once again participate in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge. Last year, Team NYU runners, joggers, and walkers enjoyed the evening of exercise and camaraderie (see 2014 photo gallery, below), joining participants from hundreds of organizations in New York City’s Central Park.
Whatever your speed, all NYU faculty and employees are encouraged to register now to participate (for both Brooklyn and Manhattan campus entrants, scroll to and click NYU Washington Square) in this year’s event and tweet using hashtag #TeamNYU before and on race day. In support of the Central Park Conservancy, the participation fee is $50, and registrants receive a team t-shirt. Registration closes Thursday, April 30 (or earlier if capacity is reached – space is limited). Go Team NYU!
NYU offers a support group for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Facilitated by an Alzheimer’s Association trained group leader, the group will provide a consistent and caring place to discuss the challenges of care giving, share feelings and concerns, and find emotional support. Group members may also exchange information and educate themselves about dementia. The group meets weekly on the Washington Square campus from 12:30 to 1:30 pm, and is limited in size to help ensure full participation by all group members. If you have questions and/or are interested in becoming a member, please send an email for consideration and prescreening.
