Over $75,000 has been raised for a local charity thanks to the Windsor Corporate Challenge.

The event on June 17 included a record-breaking 70 teams with over 1,000 participants, and 125 volunteers.

This year the money will go to the House of Sophrosyne.

The House of Sophrosyne will be allocating all funds raised towards their Family and Child Care Room in their Building for Recovery Capital Campaign.  These rooms will allow women to seek the treatment they need while caring for their children.

Since its inception, we are thrilled to announce that Windsor Corporate Challenge has raised over $715,000 for Windsor-based charities with a focus on children, women, and families.

“Every year I am overwhelmed by the dedication and generosity of teams when it comes to fundraising. Every participant makes it a priority to bring in large donations for the selected charity,” says Meighen Nehme, Founder of Windsor Corporate Challenge and President and C.E.O. of The Job Shoppe.

“This year was no different from past years. Our teams came through and raised an impressive amount for the House of Sophrosyne new Family and Child Care Room in their Building for Recovery Capital Campaign.”

The Windsor Corporate Challenge provides local businesses with a cost-effective team-building day for their employees.

The day’s agenda consists of a variety of timed activities and challenges of all levels. Teams are comprised of 10 to 12 members who compete against other local businesses for top bragging rights.
