Calgary Corporate Challenge
Calgary Corporate Challenge provides fun, engaging team-building events throughout the year, highlighted by the annual Calgary Corporate Challenge September Games. The Charity Challenge component gives teams a series of opportunities to give and engage in meaningful ways so they can do good and be good (and also earn points in the standings). We are excited to be celebrating 17 years of being a Calgary Corporate Challenge Charity partner. Since 2005, more than $445,000 in food and funds has been raised by Calgary Corporate Challenge participants to help feed YYC.
