Over 50 local companies with more than 500 team members and volunteers attended the tenth Annual Windsor Corporate Challenge this past Saturday, raising over $130,000 to support the Windsor Cancer Centre Foundation.

All net funds this year will go towards enhancing the patient experience and funding local cancer research. Since its inception, the Windsor Corporate Challenge is thrilled to announce that it has had over 3,750 unique participants, over 150 corporate companies participate, gave away $250,000 in prizing and most importantly, donated over that over $1.3M raised for Windsor-based charities with a focus on children, women, and families.

“In our 10th year of hosting the Windsor Corporate Challenge, the success is a testament to the support and compassion of our community,” comments Meighen Nehme, founder of The Windsor Corporate Challenge and President and CEO of The Job Shoppe. “

The Windsor Corporate Challenge provides local businesses with the most cost-effective team-building day for their employees. The day’s agenda consists of a variety of activities and challenges of all levels so that everyone can partake in the fun.

Teams consisted of 5-7 participants who competed against other local businesses for top bragging rights. This event is a fantastic way for employees to get to know one another, as well as provide a spirited forum for a variety of companies in Windsor-Essex County to network.

“After cancelling our event in 2020 and offering our participants a hybrid event in 2021, this year was better than we could have anticipated,” says Nehme. “It was impactful to hear how missed our event was by the participants and how much they look forward to supporting the cause and spending quality time with their coworkers.”

While Team St. Clair College was the overall official winner of the 2022 Windsor Corporate Challenge, the volunteer team of high school students, “Team Orange,” had the best score of the day, all while learning some very valuable lessons on leadership, strategy and communication.

The top fundraising team this year was the Vita Villains from International Nutrient Tech. The second highest fundraising team was Forest Glade Animal Hospital, and Tecumseh Animal Hospital earned third place.

The top individual fundraisers included Sam Madia- Vista, Jim Scott- Windsor Cancer Center Foundation, Rebecca Kirwin- CMHA and Amanda Zimmermann- Windsor Regional Hospital.

Additionally, the WFCU- Game of Loans was the winner of the Team Spirit Award and Mathew Delgreco and Lindsey Saccucci were the MVV – Most Valuable Volunteer of the day nominated by our teams.
