Employee Wellness Amazing Challenge

If you’re not familiar with Amazing Challenge, it’s loosely based on the TV show “The Amazing Race.” Teams complete a series of challenges while they race toward the finish line. Challenges are a mix of physical activity and mental challenges or puzzles. Each challenge needs to be completed in order to receive a clue to move forward. While this can be a competitive race for many teams; this can also be a fun family event completed at your own pace. The challenge usually takes 2-3 hours to complete.

Start thinking about building a team of colleagues, friends or family. Michigan Tech retirees are welcome. Teams are limited to four adults, although for those teams that are made up of families with young children, we do allow more than four members. Register here.  The registration deadline is July 7, 2017, at 5 pm.

The winning team gets bragging rights as the Amazing Challenge winner. HuskyPAW members will receive bonus points for participating.

Volunteers are needed for this event. If interested contact Shannon Brodeur.
