Dozens of companies gathered at SUNY Broome for some friendly competition.

The YMCA hosted it's 32nd annual Broome County Corporate Challenge at the campus Thursday evening. Participants took part in races designed for all abilities including a predicted mile, a team relay and a 5k.

YMCA employees say this year marked the largest community participation with 1075 people all coming together to have some fun and raise money for the YMCA Financial Assistance program.

Event Coordinator, Yvonne Nowakowski said, "It's a great event. Teams are having a ball. There's a team spirit award so people are bringing on their costumes and their team spirit. We had a flash mob earlier so they're bringing it on and having a great time. "
