Around 8,000 people representing 160 central Indiana companies will take their skills to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. They will participate in the annual Indiana Sports Corp. Corporate Challenge Saturday, which features events including parallel parking and the "CEO Selfie." Indiana Sports Corp President Ryan Vaughn says the event promotes a healthy lifestyle and team building.
The CEO Selfie challenge allows teams to earn points if their chief executive officer or president attends and takes a selfie with team members. Other events include a 10K run, a pit stop challenge, football accuracy throw, Frisbee toss, golf chipping, obstacle course and a tug-of-war contest.
Vaughn says the event has sold out the last three years. The corporations compete for prizes. Indiana Sports Corp says companies earn points by donating to several programs, including the Susan Williams CHAMPS Grant Program, Geared for Health: Sports Equipment for Kids and the Indiana Blood Center.
The public is invited to watch the competition.
Indiana Sports Corp President Ryan Vaughn calls the competition “the Olympics for business leaders.”
