Businesses and corporations will be hitting the slopes of Sun Peaks Resort for the 16th annual Telus Nancy Greene Corporate Challenge on February 17 and 18. The Grey Cup will also be making a special appearance at the event.
This fun and friendly competition will have teams of four challenging a one-run dual giant slalom with the best time of each racer counting towards the team total.
The Grey Cup’s stop at Sun Peaks for this event celebrates a new, and strong, partnership with the mountain and the B.C. Lions. The Cup will be available for public photo ops. on Sat, Feb. 18 at Masa’s Bar and Grill from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The Grey Cup isn’t the only “celebrity” in attendance for the Corporate Challenge. Former Olympians Steve Podborski and Kathy Kreiner-Phillips will be coaching the racers, along with Sun Peaks’ own Olympic Champion and Director of Skiing, Nancy Greene.
Proceeds from the race support the Sun Peaks Health Association, Sun Peaks Junior Racers and the Royal Inland Hospital Emergency Department. More than $350,000 has been raised to-date for these event beneficiaries since the race’s inception in 1997.
A celebration party will take place after the races on Sat, Feb. 18, at the Delta Sun Peaks, with food stations and silent and live auctions featuring a trip for two with Robson Heli-Magic. There will also be an exclusive photo opportunity with the coveted Grey Cup.
