Corporate Challenge Returns as Fall Event 2022
Popular event returns after two-year hiatus
Westchase District is pleased to announce the return of its long-time event: the Corporate Challenge. This annual team-building, networking event has been held annually since 1997, except for the two years of the pandemic.
Westchase District’s Corporate Challenge will return on Friday, October 14. “We excited to bring Corporate Challenge back for its 24th year,” said Sherry Fox, vice president of communications for Westchase District. “We recognize that not everyone is ready to return to competition, but with almost 60% of office workers returning in Houston and about 90% of crowds having returned to public sporting events, we figure the Corporate Challenge will appeal to that nexus of individuals.”
There will be a morning competition and an afternoon competition. Each team will be made up of four to six people and must be coed. All teams will participate in six different athletic events, which could include soccer, dodge ball and kickball. The top team in each event and the top three teams overall will be recognized at an award lunch. The high performing team of the day will receive the Corporate Challenge traveling trophy to display at their office.
“As everyone who has ever participated in Corporate Challenge knows, the event is not about the athletics; it’s about having fun, meeting other business professionals and hanging out with your colleagues,” said Fox. It’s also about raising money for charity, as all proceeds benefit the Westchase District Community Fund and Quillian Center’s summer day camps.
