JONES BEACH, NY – On Tuesday, July 26, 2016, 1800Flowers.com participated in the Marcum Workplace Challenge. Since 2005, the Marcum Workplace Challenge has brought Long Island businesses together for the amazing cause to help raise money for various charities. Annually held at Jones Beach State Park, the race features a 3.5 mile course followed by a picnic. Event participation is so great, that it is actually Long Island’s largest office picnic. This year, 1-800-Flowers.com was happy to have a team of 75 people participate in the challenge! Some even brought their families, too!
Participating Charities (including but not limited to):
- The Long Island Children’s Museum
- Long Island Cares, Inc., and more specifically, the Harry Chapin Food Bank
