How to Join

So you want to take the Challenge? Game On!

The Corporate Challenge is a 10 week Olympic style event where companies of similar size compete against one another in various events. The goal of the Challenge is to promote teamwork, company pride and corporate wellness all through healthy competition!

We aren't set up to offer the events a la carte - so if you are looking to just compete in a few events, this may not be the event for you. The idea of the Corporate Challenge is to have as many of your employees participate over the course of the 10 weeks, to meet other in your company, develop a sense of camaraderie, network with other organizations and look forward to coming to work then play!

It's not ALL just about the games, there is a philanthropic component to the Corporate Challenge. Our charity of choice is Special Olympics Texas, all companies are required to raise a minimum of $1,000 for this wonderful organization. In 2017 The Richardson Corporate Challenge was recognized as an official partner and sponsor of Special Olympics Texas, we are proud to have contributed over $2.25 million to this wonderful organization.

If you are still interested, let's take the necessary steps to get your company in on the fun!

Step 1: Budget for the Games
Registration fees cover the cost of your participation in all Corporate Challenge events, a 10x10 tent at the Opening Ceremony, as well as your logo on the promotional poster produced at the onset of the games.

Registration fees range from $2,200 to $2,700. Additional expenses may include team t-shirts, practice times, catering for your company at Opening Ceremony and a suggested giving goal for the year.

Step 2: Contact Us!
Give us a chance to come out and answer any questions, walk you through our website and give you a glimpse of how the show runs. If you need us to make a presentation to your decision makers, we’re happy to do that as well. Ready to meet? Give Hannah Meek a call at 972.744.4585 or shoot her an email at hannah.meek@cor.gov

Step 3: Identify a Company Coordinator (or two)
The person (or persons) will serve as the liaison between your company and our games staff. Monthly company coordinator meetings begin in April to provide you with tons of valuable information on how to make this event the best it can be for your company.

Step 4: Start talking it up!
It’s never too early to start planning and recruiting. We’ll share resources to help get you started and event come out to your sign up party, if you’d like! Start identifying coaches/captains for every event so they can share the workload. There are many components to this event but we are there every step of the way to help!
