Corporate Cup Challenge at YCFB

On Saturday, June 4, 2016, eight local companies and organizations will unite for a day of service at Yuma Community Food Bank (YCFB). 

The day of service is the second part of the 2016 Yuma Corporate Cup Challenge, a three-part, friendly competition where businesses join together to celebrate workplace wellness and camaraderie.

 

March 18, 2016, marked the first challenge of the 2016 Yuma Corporate Cup, when 10 companies and 70 participants walked two miles of Smucker Park in support of workplace wellness.

 

“A major component of wellness is spiritual well-being, so our Corporate Cup committee knew we wanted to celebrate giving back to the Yuma community,” said Jenn Lotz, Director of Corporate Health at Yuma Regional Medical Center. “We have welcomed several new companies to the Corporate Cup Challenge this year, expanding this celebration of workplace wellness. Collectively, we look forward to assisting the YCFB and working as one to help our community.”

 

Yuma Corporate Cup promotes community-wide involvement in fitness and health activities and to help companies incorporate the spirit of wellness within the workplace. Yuma businesses battle for points in activities, including the walking challenge, day of service and philanthropic activities. Corporate Cup culminates with Old School Sports Day, a morning of tug of war, archery, Frisbee golf, relay races and more.

 

“We are so grateful at Yuma Community Food Bank for the Corporate Cup Challenge helping us out in one of the worst seasons for the Food Bank – the summer,” said Mike Ivers, president and CEO of YCFB. “Once again, this is a sign of the incredible generosity in Yuma County.”
