Charity Challenge is an annual event that takes place every May. This event gives companies for the hospitality industry such as restaurants, bars, clubs, hotels and apartment communities to compete against each other in six co-ed athletic events such as obstacle course, tug-of-war, kayak relay, volleyball, tubing relay and basketball shootout to raise funds for local charities.
This is a great way to form employee unity, team spirit and reduce turnover rates by keeping them loyal to your company. All of your team’s contributions go to the charity of your choice. So, are you up for the CHALLENGE?! Why not??
