The Bank Windhoek Fun Day, previously known as the Bank Windhoek Corporate Challenge Relay, will take place on Saturday, 11 November 2017, at the Deutscher Turn und Sportverein (DTS) sports fields in Olympia, Windhoek.
Registration of all entries will start at 07:00 while the games are scheduled to kick-off at 11:00.
The objective of the Bank Windhoek Fun Day is to raise funds for various welfare organisations. “Bank Windhoek cares about the health and wellbeing of the community we work in and its staff. It aims to promote a healthy lifestyle and physical fitness – essential to a balanced lifestyle,” said Bank Windhoek’s Executive Officer: Marketing and Corporate Communication Services, Jacquiline Pack.
“In the past we hosted the day as a Corporate Challenge Relay in which companies in the same sectors competed against each other in a relay. The companies used the event for team building. But, we got lots of requests to open the event to groups of families and friends, so we decided to change the format to a Fun Day for the whole family. Now corporates can use the day as a family day for their staff members,” Pack said.
Instead of the 20 km relay of the past, participants will now have to compete in various traditional games, while each team member will still have to complete a run of 1.25 km. In addition, the more athletic participants can still take part in a 5 km fun run or walk, which will be hosted separately but at the same venue.
Entry fees for a team of four individuals are N$400 and routes will be revealed at the start of the event.
Participants are encouraged to enter by completing an entry form which is available at all Bank Windhoek branches in Windhoek or on the Bank’s website at www.bankwindhoek.com.na. The closing date for entries is Friday, 10 November 2017.
All participants will receive a participation medals on completion and winning teams will be awarded with prizes.
Participants can bring their families along as the event will cater for the whole family. This includes live entertainment, a kids section with a jumping castle and various activities and food will also be on sale.
Entry forms are available at all Bank Windhoek branches in Windhoek and on the Bank’s website at www.bankwindhoek.com.na.
