The 36th annual Buffalo JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge will draw more than 12,000 walkers and runners to Delaware Park.

The 3.5 mile race begins at 6:45 p.m. Traffic and parking in the area will be heavily impacted. 

The event raises money for different charities across the world. Funds from the Buffalo JPMorgan Chase Corporate Challenge will benefit 'Say Yes Buffalo' and 'Classroom Champions', both charities started by Buffalo natives.

'Classroom Champions' is a non-profit that places Olympians and athletes in classrooms to help students build emotional and social skills. 'Say Yes Buffalo' is a non-profit aimed at improving the city's public school system and providing college scholarships.
