Aiken City Cup Corporate Fitness Challenge Tuesday, May 7 – Thursday, May 9, 2019
The City of Aiken Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department holds its City Cup Corporate Fitness Challenge each May in celebration of National Employee Health and Fitness Day. This is a national health observance administered annually by the National Association for Health & Fitness to promote the benefits of physical activity for individuals through their worksite health promotion activities. The 11th annual City Cup will be held May 7 – 9, 2019.
The Aiken City Cup Corporate Fitness Challenge serves as common ground for small and large organizations to meet in friendly competition. Events run from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm over three consecutive days and include, but are not limited to, co-ed basketball, table tennis, disc golf, walking, 2-mile run, volleyball, pickleball, and NEW this year, flag football. Most are set up in a bracket format and companies receive points based on participation and placement in the standings. At the end of the challenge, an overall winning company is determined and they are awarded the City Cup trophy. The trophy is engraved with the winning company’s name and the year. It is kept at their place of business until the following year when it is then returned to be handed off to the next winning team.
This program meets the needs of the City of Aiken’s long-term goal of promoting healthier lifestyles within the City of Aiken. It ties in with our staff wellness program and coordinates with local businesses to help their wellness initiatives. Since its inception, the event has been supported by a group of 20 or more dedicated community volunteers. As the past competing companies can affirm, a little friendly competition within the workplace can go a long way to motivating employees towards better health and improving the company’s culture through teamwork!
