Our local YMCA hosts a Corporate Cup challenge each year. Area companies form teams and compete in a variety of events to encourage health, fitness, sportsmanship, teamwork – and fun!
The events include the typical games like soccer, volleyball, swimming, and basketball – but also include ‘human curling’, kickball (in the snow!), extreme fitness challenges, endurance and even a scavenger hunt.
It really is a great event, and promotional products definitely play a role. Every team sports custom t-shirts with a team ‘theme’ and it’s not uncommon to see a logo’d sport bottle or imprinted sportpack as well!
Thanks to all on our team and everyone that we competed with for a fun Saturday. Here’s a picture from the event, featuring a old guy who looks quite a bit like me pulling every muscle in his body. I found out the next morning that apparently you use different muscles playing dodgeball than you do sitting in your cubicle writing blog posts.
Then again, I think that might just be one of the key points of the event.
