2018 September Games Highlights
Check out our 2018 highlight video here: CCC 2018
We can hardly believe it's been a month since this year's Opening Ceremony. In that month, we've been blown away by everyone's energy and participation in spite of (and maybe even in light of) the weather during some of those weekend events.
With things still fresh in our minds, we thought we'd share some of the highlights and victories from this year's September Games...
Highlights from The Podium
- Trican Well Service Ltd. took first place in the Purple Division with 79 points after competing against all of the new-to-CCC companies in 2018!
- Scovan Engineering got top honours in the Blue Division with 157 points and managed to earn the Spirit Award too!
- RJC Engineers topped the Green Division podium with 150 points and an impressive win in the 2018 T-Shirt Challenge.
- Murphy Oil Company clinched 1st in the White Division with 138 points and an incredible showing in the Charity Challenge.
- Mark's topped the podium in the Red Division with 140 points and perhaps the most practical, and simultaneously fashionable, company shirts of the year: flannel long sleeves.
- Imperial edged out the competition in the Orange Division after extensivetie-breaking procedures with a total of 172 points, 5 Gold Medals, 5 Silver Medals and a perfect score (10 points) in the 2018 Charity Challenge!
- 10 CCC companies hosted puppy cuddle fundraising events in support of AARCS, helping raise nearly $30,000 and hundreds of needed supplies for the cause.
- Over $11,000 in cash and $3,500 worth of gifts in-kind were donated to Branch Out Foundation.
- More than 550 volunteer hours were contributed and 3,410 pounds of non-perishable food were donated to the Calgary Food Bank.
- Bookworms rejoice! Calgary Reads is up 6,000 books and over $11,000 for bursaries benefiting local schools.
- Canadian Blood Services donations were up this year with 400 more units collected than in 2017 and 428 new donors joining the cause. Coincidence? We think not.
- A staggering $328k+ was raised and 72 CCC companies rode the Big Bike to raise awareness and funds in support of Heart & Stroke.
- A warm $30,189 was raised in support of one of our newest charities: HomeFront YYC.
- Over $50k was raised for KidSport Calgary #SoAllKidsCanPlay. Future CCC-ers in the making, we bet!

- Families staying at the Ronald McDonald House have CCC companies to thank for over $85K in donations, funding 447 nights of stays for families at the House.

$20 gets you "in the ring" for a 30-minute class including the cost of hand wraps and gloves. All you need to bring is some workout gear and a killer instinct.*
We'll also have other goodies on-site for some post-workout mingling, so stick around for a beer or two and brag to your friends about how that heavy bag didn't stand a chance!
*Killer instinct not mandatory.
