Calling on all corporates
17 February 2019 | Sports
According to the organisers, the event is a wonderful platform for team building or just a fun get-together with friends.
According to the bank, relay teams comprise four members that each run or walk a 5 km route set out in Olympia. In addition to the relay being a fun-filled team building event, it also promotes a healthy lifestyle and physical fitness.
“The format is unique in the Namibian context in that it encompasses teams of four taking part, not just individuals,” says Bank Windhoek’s executive for marketing and corporate communication services, Jacquiline Pack. “We want to bring together teams from different companies and schools so that they can enjoy themselves and engage in some healthy competition. In fact, even friends and family who would like to enter a four person team can participate.”
Teams compete in categories for men, women, mixed and schools. Entry per adult team is N$400, while school teams pay N$200. The money raised will be donated to various charitable initiatives countrywide.
Participants can set up their own shade, tables and chairs where they can relax and socialise. Local entertainers Wambüseun and DJ Fish, will perform during the event and participants are encouraged to bring along their own food. Braai drums with burning fires will be available for those who would like to braai, but participants can also buy already prepared braai plates from the Doc Jubber hockey clubhouse.
Note that participants will not be allowed to bring their own drinks onto the premises, but the clubhouse has a liquor licence.
“By hosting this event we are hoping to affect positive change and to assist with the upliftment of the communities in which we operate,” Pack says.
Teams wanting to enter can visit OTB’s website to register or contact the coordinator, Suzette January at 061 299 1278 or [email protected]
The Corporate Challenge Relay takes place on Saturday 16 March at the Doc Jubber hockey fields.
