Corporate Challenge

2018 Sponsorship Information

 

June 2-3, 2018

 

The OU Medicine Corporate Challenge is celebrating 30 years of bringing Oklahoma City area companies together for friendly competition, teamwork and fun by shining a spotlight on our city’s commitment to health and wellness.  Over the years the event has evolved bringing in new and exciting elements, attracting new participants, and raising money for charity. 

 

Each year, we send an evaluation survey to our team captains who have terrific ideas and suggestions.  We try to incorporate as many of these ides as we can each year.  This year, we are condensing our competition schedule to accommodate work schedules and to include as many employees as possible.  Competition in 2018 will be on June 2nd and 3rd, leaving Friday, June 1st as a setup day.  Teams are welcome to decorate tents beginning at noon, and a Team Captain Social is planned that evening to kick-off the weekend.  Opening Ceremonies will be set for 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning with Executive Relay and Corporate Kids Fitness Challenge shortly after.  We are excited about this change and are confident that this will allow for more to be present.

 

For the eighth consecutive year Corporate Challenge participating companies will raise money for a similar, and incredibly inspiring event: the UCO Endeavor Games, an athletic competition for athletes with physical disabilities. In these few years, we have raised over $370,000 for this great cause. This year we are sure to add to this total in a big way!

 

This email will provide an overview of the two-day competition, including athletic events, awards, general rules and company sponsorship packages.  It also includes registration information to help get your company started right away.  Please be sure to go online and submit your registration no later than Friday, March 16, 2018. A luncheon for team captains is scheduled for Thursday, April 19, 2018 to distribute additional information and answer questions.

 

Honor the Challenge – our 2018 theme.  Each day we challenge ourselves to be better, greater than we were the day before.  The challenge is not easy, but then again, anything worth having is worth the effort.  Please feel free to incorporate the colors of our event logo (above) or use your own in your T-shirt designs.

 

Each year we like to pause and thank our longtime Corporate Challenge partners who make this event possible, and welcome our new participants. We thank you all and look forward to an amazing event in 2018!.

 

Sincerely,

2018 Corporate Challenge Planning Committee
