United Way of Greater Augusta hosts an annual Corporate Cup event at Ridgeview Park in Waynesboro every fall. The event is meant to create an environment for friendly competition as well as a way for corporations to interact with Non-Profits that are funded by the United Way. The Corporate Cup is a day long event with individual competitions in the morning and the team competitions in the afternoon. It's a fun filled day for the entire family with food trucks, bouncy houses and other children's activities.
For the individual events, participants walk around the park competing in activities like the Football Toss, Golf, Tennis, Basketball 3pt ShootOut as well as a Scavenger Hunt. In the afternoon they join the rest of their team and compete collectively in the Trivia round, Tug-of-War, Water Balloon Toss and the Amazing Race. In the end the points for all events are calculated and awards are given out for all events and one company is crowned the Corporate Cup Champion. The reward is a huge trophy, but most importantly, bragging rights. For more information or to sign up a team for 2017, email Nadina Pupic.
Corporate Cup 2016
This year, previous Corporate Cup champion NIBCO was hoping to complete what is known in sports as a Dynasty by winning the Cup for the third year in the row. In order to achieve that, they had to beat our Hershey, who has also won the trophy twice, and a team from Hollister.
Competitors ran around the park all day trying to "Out Do" their opponents.
Some challenges involved BRAINS
