Do Good” is the event to choose as your group gets involved in a service project that is also a teambuilding event!

Through this event, you will help make dreams come true for a very worthy non-profit organization.

 

The Bicycle Building Event!

Many inner city youth would give everything for a bright shiny new bike! In this event, your team is tasked with assembling bikes and making them rider-ready. The goal ~ assemble the bikes correctly, participate in all the challenges, and be the fastest team in the race! All under time restrictions to be ready for the final challenge!

To begin, teams are divided and given a basic box containing pieces of a bicycle and all the tools they need to assemble the bikes – and a looming deadline. What they are not given is the instruction manual! Welcome to Christmas Eve! As they assemble, they can visit the “Inspection Station” to get assistance. They’ll also compete in challenges and trivia designed to bring out that team spirit. Challenges will be designed with your input and goals in mind; sample challenges might include:

  • bike 2Power of Team: Each team is given a sheet of Woordles – puzzles that they must complete. By sharing ideas and spring boarding off one another’s thoughts, they can get the solution to all of them.
  • Name that Tune: This challenge will require all the generations in your work force to work together to name the songs.
  • Commonalities: Teams must find as many things as possible that they all have in common.

As your group goes through the challenges, they are rewarded with bonus points and maybe even extra bike supplies. The building continues, and teams continue the process of working together to accomplish the goal.

When the bikes are completed, they will go through a technical inspection prior to the big race. Teams will compete in a ‘bike rodeo’ ~ a fun and unique obstacle course that will test their teamwork skills and reveal how they did building their bikes! Winners will go home with a prize, but the BEST prize is the look on your guests’ faces when the bikes are given to the representative from a local non-profit agency!
