CCC’s 10K Run will be held on Saturday, September 15. (In previous years, this event was held in the first weekend of the September Games.)
CCC’s Family Day will be held on Sunday, September 16. (In previous years, this event was held in the first weekend of the September Games.)
CCC Idol is no longer an event. This event has been replaced by the CCC Halfway Party, which is set to take place on Friday, September 14. Two participation points are associated with attending.
Scavenger Hunt is no longer an event. This event has been replaced by The Amazing Race, a *new* Sports Event that will run on Family Day at Stampede Park.
The charity-oriented component of the Scavenger Hunt has been retained through the Charity Challenge, and all tangible items will be accepted at the Charity Challenge Drop Off on the final day of the September Games.
Game Boards and CEO Challenge Passports must be picked up at Opening Ceremony or directly from the Games Office by Tuesday, September 11 at noon. No additional pickup opportunities will be offered.
Company t-shirts that are submitted for the T-Shirt Challenge must be dropped off at the Games Office prior to the first day of the September Games, or on-site at Opening Ceremony. No additional drop-off opportunities will be offered.
CCC has developed an internal roster of Sports Events that we have the ability to run during the September Games each year. From this roster, we have selected 22 Sports Events to offer in 2018.
Note: If you do not see an event listed below as a 2018 event, it does not mean that we have eliminated that event altogether, or that you will not see that event in future years. CCC may bring an event back, bring a new event in, or change any number of events in the Games each year. We base these decisions on feedback received from our participants through our annual survey and the status of our partnerships with local venues.
Badminton has moved to SmashCity Calgary (formerly held at Repsol Sport Centre).
Basketball has moved to Repsol Sport Centre (formerly held at Mount Royal University).
CCC is partnering with 10 local charities/charitable groups (an increase of 3 partners) for the 2018 Charity Challenge. These organizations are listed as follows:
Branch Out Foundation (new)
Calgary Food Bank
Canadian Blood Services
Heart & Stroke
HomeFront YYC (new)
Ronald McDonald House
The Mustard Seed
Charity Partners - Game Board Challenge
CCC’s ten charity partners will be included on the Game Board for the first time this year. Participating companies will be awarded a bonus point in the Overall Results if they obtain all ten of these stickers.
Note: A sticker “swap” or “trade” is not required for charity stickers. The charity partners will not be asking for a company sticker in exchange for giving you their charity sticker.
Charity Challenge Points
CCC has made changes to the points structure for the 2018 Charity Challenge.
Companies will be awarded points based on meeting specific thresholds instead of being awarded points based on where they finish by comparison to other companies (as was the case in 2017). This point structure will mimic a similar format to the CEO Challenge and the Game Board Challenge, ensuring that all companies are fairly awarded for the efforts they put forth in the Charity Challenge.
All companies will be able to clearly see how many points can be earned in the Overall Results by completing specific charity initiatives in the Charity Challenge and set their goals for the year accordingly.
CEOs (those participating in the CEO Challenge) do not need to attend the Charity Challenge Drop Off (formerly Scavenger Hunt).
Charity Challenge Tangible Donations
Tangible donations to all charities, including gift certificates, will only be accepted at the Charity Challenge Drop Off. (In previous years, some tangible donations were accepted at Family Day.)
