Annual Corporate Cup Challenge
Saturday October 1, 2016
at the UC Irvine Athletic Center
Our primary fundraiser each year consists of a friendly "challenge" competition between teams of employees from local companies that have gratiously chosen to help fund our projects. The event is usually held on the grounds of the UC Irvine campus, on a Saturday in the Fall.
The Corporate Cup Challenge events include such things as bridge crossings, dodge ball, etc.
We're always looking for volunteers to help whith this event! Tasks include everything from planning to soliciting companies to helping out on the day of the event.
Update on the 2015 Corporate Challenge
The 2015 Corporate Challenge was conducted on Saturday, September 12, 2015. A total of eight teams (Burns McDonnell, EEC, GHD, Langan, Michael Baker, Tetra Tech, and two teams from Applied Medical) participated in the 2015 Corporate Cup. Events included volleyball, a relay race, Heads Up, a catapult challenge, and the favorite, the Odyssey Obstacle Course. Each team consisted of 8 to 12 members. Donations for coffee, bagels, and doughnuts were made by Starbucks (across from UC Irvine), Bagels Brew in Aliso Viejo, and Miss Donuts in Fullerton. Burns McDonnell won 1st Place, Applied Medical (Team #1) won 2nd Place, and EEC won 3rd Place. All proceeds from the Corporate Challenge went to the Kenya, Honduras, and El Salvador projects that are currently being conducted by the EWB Orange County Chapter. The event was very spirited and was great fun for everyone involved.
