BNP Media Donates and Participates in Challenged Athletes Foundation “Empire State Building Run-Up”

BNP Media Co-CEO Taggart Henderson Takes Part in Running Famed Building’s 86 Flights

BNP Media donated $2,500 to the Challenged Athletes Foundation in conjunction with the 39th annual Empire State Building Run-Up. The world’s oldest and most famous tower race challenged runners from around the globe to race up its famed 86 flights and 1,576 stairs.

BNP Co-CEO Taggart Henderson was in the race and will never forget the experience. “It was amazing to take part in this great event and run in this iconic building,” Henderson said. “The Challenged Athletes Foundation does such great work and I’m thrilled I was able to participate on behalf of BNP Media.”

BNP Media’s New York staff recently re-located to the 60th floor of the Empire State Building. The move followed BNP Media’s recent acquisition of Architectural Record, considered “the record” of architectural history, a monthly magazine that has been dedicated to architecture and interior design for more than 110 years.

The Challenged Athletes Foundation provides opportunities and assistance to people with physical disabilities so that they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics.

Philanthropy and community engagement are core values at BNP Media, and it supports organizations that help build a higher quality of life for individuals and families.
