How to Join
So you want to take the Challenge? Game On!
The Corporate Challenge is an Olympic-style event with companies of similar size competing against one another in various athletic and non-athletic events over the course of 10-weeks. The goal: to promote and enable teamwork, company pride and corporate wellness - all through healthy competition!
We aren't set-up to offer the events a la carte - so if you're looking to just compete in say Softball, Flag Football and Soccer - well...this may not be the event for you. The idea of the Corporate Challenge is to have as many of your employees participate over the course of the 10-weeks...to meet others in your company, develop a sense of camaraderie, network with other organizations, and look forward to coming to work to then play!
It's not ALL just games either...there’s a philanthropic component to the Corporate Challenge as well. Our charity of choice is Special Olympics Texas and new companies are asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 for this wonderful organization. We are proud to have contributed over $1.4M to Special Olympics Texas since 1998.
If you're still interested...let's take the necessary steps to get your company in on the fun!
Step 1: Budget for the Games
Registration fees cover the cost of your participation in all Corporate Challenge events, a 10 x 10 tent at the Opening Ceremony, as well as your logo on the promotional poster produced at the onset of the games. Registration fees range from $2200 to $2700. Additional expenses may include team T-shirts, practice times, catering for your company at the Opening Ceremony and a suggested giving goal for the first year.
Step 2: Contact Us!
Give us a chance to come out and answer any questions, walk you through our website and give you a glimpse of how the show runs. If you need us to make the presentation to your decision makers, we’re happy to do that as well. Ready to meet? Give Robbie Hazelbaker a call at 972.744.4316 or shoot him an email at Robbie.Hazelbaker@cor.gov.
Step 3: Identify a Company Coordinator (or two)
This person (or persons) will serve as the liaison between your company and our staff. Monthly Company Coordinator meetings begin in April to provide you with TONS of valuable information on how to make this event the best it can be for your company!
Step 4: Start talking it up!
It's never too early to start planning or recruiting. We’ll share resources to help get you started and even come out to your sign-up party, if you’d like! Start identifying coaches/captains for every event so they can share the workload. There are many components to this event...but it's a whole lot of fun and we’re there every step of the way! Get in the Game!
