What is the Wood Buffalo Corporate Challenge? Corporate Challenge is a four-day event promoting health and wellness in the workplace in a fun, team-oriented and supportive series of inclusive sport challenges. The event will be centered on MacDonald Island Park at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre and will take place September 27-30, 2012. Corporate Challenge brings the spirit of the Olympics to a local and more intimate playing field. We offer eight different team events and many social networking opportunities throughout the four days of competition. Corporate Challenge is a healthy way for local companies and their employees to stay active in the community while adding a social component for those that want to cheer on their colleagues. In a busy work-oriented community like Wood Buffalo, employees need the opportunity for unity, togetherness, and camaraderie. Corporate Challenge

promotes, enables, and supports teamwork, company pride and corporate health and wellness. Some of today’s most successful companies understand the real business benefits of being involved in corporate health and wellness activities. Well-structured events are an excellent way to encourage initiative, reward the commitment of staff, improve morale, inspire cooperation and team spirit, and motivate staff to take a positive outlook on health in the workplace. Now more than ever, Wood Buffalo businesses, our working staff, and our families need healthy activities to share. We need to be reminded of health and wellness in all areas of life including the workplace. For more information about the Wood Buffalo Corporate Challenge, please see the website at www.wbcc.ca


WOOD BUFFALO CORPORATE CHALLENGE TEAM EVENTS TV Trivia Finally the time wasted watching countless hours of television comes in handy! Choose your team wisely as they will need to be masters in five different television categories. From sitcoms to sports and everything in between is it even possible to even know it all? Bus Pull Show just how strong your company really is! In this part of the challenge, your company will need more than just athletic ability and brains; they will need to dig down deep as they try to pull a bus 24 feet and over the finish line. Not only do they need to get it over the finish line they also have to do it with the fastest time! Relay Triathlon Is your company up for the challenge? The challenge of selecting three employees (swimmer, cyclist, and runner) to compete in the relay triathlon! The team relay triathlon promotes teamwork, a healthy workforce, corporate health, and work/life balance. Start hosting your try-outs today and get those top three athletes that will bring your company across the finish line first! Human Bonspiel HURRRRRRYYYYYY HAAAARRRDDDDD!!!!!!!!!! As you try to slide your body closest to the button in this fun twist to the classic game of curling. The bodies of your team members will be replacing the curling stones in the hopes that you can maneuver bodies to get the best position in the house!

Dodgeball If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball! Get your fastest “dodgers” out of the office and put your team together for this classic sport. Dodge ball is a game in which players try to hit other players on the opposing team with balls while avoiding being hit themselves. Innertube Waterpolo Just like a day at the beach! Except add the task of competing on the water and staying afloat on innertubes at the Canadian Dewatering 54m Pool at the Syncrude Aquatic Centre. Innertube waterpolo is a variation of the sport waterpolo with the important difference that players, excluding the goalkeeper, are required to float in inflatable inner tubes.
