Calgary Corporate Challenge brings together 160 Calgary companies (that’s over 10,000 people!) to face off like Olympians. It's sixteen days of competitions focusing on fun, teamwork and networking.
Calgary Corporate Challenge's annual Charity Challenge gives companies a chance to promote philanthropy and goodwill by supporting local charity partners. Each charity outlines a series of "Giving Opportunities" that allow teams to interact in meaningful ways based on their needs. Since 2006, CCC has raised over $7.7 million through the Charity Challenge and other charity-focused initiatives.
