 Corporate Challenge
July 30 - August 2

This fall, employees, managers, and volunteers from companies throughout Crawford County’s business community will participate in an event called Corporate Challenge. For four days, participants will take part in a wide array of sporting and special events during the evenings. Teams are encouraged to come in team t-shirts, costumes or even their mascots can join in on the fun! We encourage a fun, active, lifestyle for all participants, by offering a wide variety of events targeting the corporate population as a whole – not just the athletic elite. 

Each day scores will be tallied from activities the night before.  Standings will be posted on our website at www.pittks.org and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/PPRD1.  Any changes to games or schedules (due to weather, etc.) will be updated on the website, Facebook and our inclement weather number 620-232-PARK (7275).

Our Corporate Challenge dinner/potluck and awards ceremony will be held at Pittsburg's Memorial Auditorium & Convention Center on the last day of the challenges.  Everyone who has participated in the games is invited to the dinner to cheer on their team for the final night of action.
