Thank you Partners

Welcome! 

We are glad that you are here and are interested in registering for the Corporate Challenge! We are the only of our size and kind in Texas! The Corporate Challenge is unique in the fact that companies have the opportunity to participate in up to 25 different events in 10 weeks!

Companies are expected to compete in all events offered therefore we are not 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 others 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.

The Richardson Corporate Challenge is an official partner and sponsor of Special Olympics Texas, one of only 9 statewide sponsors. We are proud to have contributed over $2.9 million to this wonderful organization. Over the past three years our companies have gone above and beyond to support Special Olympics Texas raising over $860,000 in three short years! 

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

Budget for the Games

Registration fees are based on your overall company size. Registration for a company with 350 or more employees is $2,700, registration for a company with 349 or less employees is $2,200.

Registration fees cover the cost of your participation in all Corporate Challenge events, a 10×10 tent at the Opening Ceremony, as well as your logo on the promotional poster produced at the onset of the games.

Additional expenses include team t-shirts, practice times, catering for your company at Opening Ceremony and a $1,000 fundraising goal for Special Olympics Texas. 

Identify Company Coordinator

For new companies we recommend identifying 2 Company Coordinators to assist with the work load that comes with being the main person of contact between your company’s employees and the games office.

Company Coordinators will serve as the liaison between your company and our games staff. To assist in our efficiency please limit communication to two coordinators between 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.

Start talking it up!

You will begin talking up the games with your company, get everyone excited and ready to go! A best practice is to recruit people to become team captains for each event so you as the Company Coordinator has a liaison between you and each individual event! Utilize those players who are passionate about various events and give them the opportunity to be a leader!

It is important to establish those teams captains and coaches early so they can begin recruiting team members and get the excitement going!

You can’t do it all alone make sure to build your teams up!
