Kansas City Corporate Challenge

The Kansas City Corporate Challenge (KCCC) is an Olympic-style charitable event that allows participants to interact with each other through sporting events that occur April through June every year. Games are played every year from April through June at iconic Kansas City locations including the Truman Sports Complex, Kansas Speedway and Shawnee Mission Park. Each year, a Kansas City-based charitable organization benefits financially from KCCC. We encourage all JCCC employees to check out the options, including volunteer work, and pick their favorite sport—even if that sport is to stand on the sidelines and cheer on your co-workers!

Registrations open yearly mid-to-late January, and close early-to-mid March. Watch out for InfoHub messages around those times for announcements on when registrations have opened or are about to close! Want more information about the Corporate Challenge? Check out KCCC’s website.  You may also email Mary Anne Matos.
