The City of Nacogdoches Parks and Recreation Department is honored to formally invite your company to participate in the Seventh Annual Corporate Challenge event to take place April 14-28, 2012. The Corporate Challenge offers friendly athletic competition among companies who value enhancing their employees’ quality of life. An active workforce reduces absenteeism and health claims while increasing camaraderie, health awareness, and job performance. Most importantly…it’s fun!
If you are not totally familiar with the Corporate Challenge, let us give you a brief outline. The Corporate Challenge provides nine events in which various members of your organization can participate. These include: Golf, Men’s Basketball, Women’s Mini Golf, Bowling, Futsal, Badminton, Washers, Volleyball, and Dodgeball. No company is too large or too small to compete! Awards will be given to each division for overall and individual events. Participation is our primary goal so give us a call to get information on how to register for any or all events facilitated by the City of Nacogdoches Parks and Recreation Department. We look forward to a great challenge!
