If this is your first time out or you’re a seasoned vet, we know there may be some questions you have and we’re here to help! Below are some important Q&A’s regarding the Windsor Corporate Challenge.

NEW CAPTAIN FAQ

Corporate Challenge teams are required to have 8 people at each event. While you may enter a team of 12 people, most teams will have  team members to allow for bathroom breaks, etc.

In addition to the 8-12 team members, each team may provide a minimum of two volunteers for the event. These volunteers will be used in various roles throughout the event (e.g. assisting at an event, selling refreshment tickets, parking control, etc.).

Our volunteer coordinator will contact your teams’ volunteers via email to ensure they are signed up for the volunteer activity of their choice. All volunteers will be provided with lunch, two refreshment tickets and a volunteer t-shirt; and will participate in a fun-filled day while helping our charity to meet its fundraising goals.

WCC recommends that you have 8-12 participants on game day.

Yes, you will be able to participate in all the game day events for WCC. Your schedule will have 10 predetermined slots of 15 minute breaks to allow your team to rest, stay hydrated and eat.

The entry fee is used to offset the costs of running Corporate Challenge (i.e. event costs, tent rentals, equipment rentals, waste containers, port-o-potties, security, police, volunteer lunches etc. etc.). All net funds including any balance of the team’s entries fees, all funds raised on event day (i.e. food sales), and 100% of the monies fundraised by the teams participating in Corporate Challenge go directly to a local Windsor Charity. Not one penny will go to waste nor do any monies associated with this event go to any other source. All members of the Corporate Challenge Committee are volunteers and are providing their time and efforts at no charge.

If you have participated in WCC before we recommend telling your team members about your first-hand experience and all the fun you had! If this if your first year participating, we recommend that you show your team our poster, send out emails to keep your team members engaged, and set up meetings to keep track of your fundraising goals.

There are a variety of events you will be participating in on game day. Some of the events are physical, some will challenge your mind, and some involve water!

If one of your team members cannot attend, you can simply register another member to your team for game day.

You add additional team members by visiting the WCC website and registering them. This must be done before game day, as these new members will need to sign off on waiver and get their wrist band.

We’re sorry to see you go but we understand. Even with the best intentions sometimes our plans do not come to fruition. We will take care of removing your team from our registration database.

As for the registration fee….  you can transfer your registration fee to a donation and a charity tax receipt will be issued OR if you withdrawing your team 30 days prior to the event we can issue a refund cheque. Please advise which option your team would prefer.

If you would still like to participate in the event, we can always use extra volunteers. If you are interested, please let us know.

This is not a goodbye but a see you soon. Hopefully, your team will sign up for next year’s event.

PARTICIPANT KITS

  • Swag bag
  • Wrist band
  • Final waiver

You are required to pick up your participant kit and sign the waiver to legally be allowed to participate.

  • You can pick up your participant kit the day before the event from 8am-8pm on Friday, at The Job Shoppe, 12137 Tecumseh Rd. E., Tecumseh On, N8N 1M2
  • If you are unable to visit The Job Shoppe, you can pick up your kit from 8am to 8pm at the Vollmer Complex, 2121 Laurier Pkwy, Windsor, ON N9J 0B4
  • If each one of the over 1500 participants decided to pick up their participation kit on the day of the event, there would be an extreme delay. This would affect start times, schedules, and ultimately the whole day.
  • If you have a special circumstance, please contact info@windsorcorporatechallenge.com to arrange a pick up time for your participation kit the day of the event.

No because the final waiver involves crosschecking ID as this is a licensed event and participants must have their wrist band applied by a WCC member

The wristbands are required to verify that you are 19 years of age. Because the Windsor Corporate Challenge is a liquor licensed event, you must be 19 years of age to take part.

FOOD QUESTIONS

You can place your order between May 10th and June 11th.

Due to fire regulations, you cannot bring a barbeque onsite. We prefer that you purchase food from our onsite vendors either with your team’s pre-order or during the designated lunch break onsite. All proceeds from food sales go towards the charity.
