The Frisco Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the 2017 3rd Annual 5-Star Corporate Challenge on Friday, May 12, 2017 at Dr. Pink Field. The events begin at 9:00 AM. The 5-Star Corporate Challenge will pit local businesses against each other in a friendly competition while promoting team-building, business-to-business networking, and corporate wellness. Sixteen teams made up of 5 females and 5 males will compete for the ultimate prize – The Chamber Cup.
Team events include: Quarterback Drills, Field Day Relay, GOAL!, Deck Out Dash, Trike Bike Relay, Basketball Shoot Out, and Tug-of-War. The signature event of the 5-Star Corporate Challenge is the Lip Sync Battle, sponsored by First National Bank Southwest, which will begin at 2:00 PM. An award ceremony and celebration will follow the Lip Sync Battle.
The 5-Star Corporate Challenge began as a class project for Leadership Frisco XXVIII. Randstad Technologies was the first place winner in 2015 and The Cheney Group won the first place in 2016. The first place winner is given the Chamber Cup for the entire year. The Cheney Group had fun posting pictures of the Chamber Cup throughout the year and often took the cup to events. Mayor-Elect Jeff Cheney, owner of The Cheney Group, coined the phrase “Ultimate Adult Field Day” that the Chamber is now using.
Meet the Competition Night, sponsored by Whitley Penn LLP, was held at the new Lava Cantina in The Colony. During this networking event, team pairings and lip sync order were drawn and the Chamber Cup returned by the Cheney Group.
Teams have been practicing for the event and the Frisco Chamber of Commerce has been sharing fun rivalry videos on the Frisco 5-Star Facebook Page at facebook.com/Frisco5Star or @Frisco5Star.
A portion of the registration fees will benefit the Collin College Foundation and the Frisco Education Foundation. A food drive, which is part of the competition, will benefit Frisco Family Services.
