22nd Annual Corporate Challenge Brings Rugby to Westchase District

Members of the Houston SaberCats, an American professional rugby union team, led participants through a rugby agility course at the 22nd annual Westchase District Corporate Challenge, sponsored by Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam. Three hundred participants, representing 49 teams participated in the event on Friday, March 29.

 

In addition to rugby, participants competed in the Soccer Kick, NBA Around the World, Kickball, Briefcase Relay and Dodge Ball. This “field day for adults”  was conceived in 1997 as a way to bring Westchase District businesses together for a day of fun, networking and corporate team-building. Over the years, it has grown into a highly-competitive event that sells out every year, while generating thousands of dollars for area charities.

 

Awards to be presented April 25

Awards will be presented to the top team in each event and the top three teams overall. The top performing team will display the traveling trophy at their place of business for the next year. Past winners have included: Revere Middle School (2018); Costello, Inc. (2011 – 2017); Sterling Bank (2010); Wesley Academy (2009); BMC Software (2000, 2001, 2004-2006, 2008); URS Corporation (2007); ABB Lummus Global (2002 – 2003); and the Adam’s Mark Hotel (1998 – 1999).

 

The award lunch is generously hosted by the Houston Marriott Westchase.

 

Summer Camp and Charitable Support

Since 1998, the Westchase District’s Corporate Challenge has raised more than $263,000 for area charities, including Quillian Center’s summer day camps.  The proceeds from the 2019 Corporate Challenge will be distributed by Westchase District Community Fund at the award lunch.
