The Corporate Games is dedicated to promoting healthy communities through sport by supporting Sport Nova Scotia in the delivery of grassroots sport programs.
The 4th annual Corporate Games will take place Saturday, November 26th, 2016 at the Canada Games Centre. The event provides businesses with an opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled day competing in activities, games and challenges, all in support of amateur sport!
With the emphasis on fun and participation, teams will compete in a series of non-traditional team building events and challenges such as wheelie race, office table tennis, 9 legged race and segway series! The games will promote the interaction of co-workers, build morale, and instill company pride.
Teams earn points based on the performance in the challenges with the possibility of earning bonus points for fundraising. The team with the highest accumulated point score is declared the overall games champion. Prizes are awarded for the top teams and fundraisers.
In addition to fun and games, teams receive refreshments, gifts and prizes!
Proceeds from the Corporate Games will help support Sport Nova Scotia in the delivery of our programming including our KidSport and Parasport programs. Funds will be used to do things such as help offset costs for registration and equipment for children in financial need as well as deliver programs for individuals with disabilities.
