Acts of Kindness Challenge
From May 16 to June 19, 2021

​A lighthearted competition that gets your team SPIRIT points while putting a smile on someone's face! Your team can perform random Acts of Kindness on a friend, family member, a coworker, neighbour, charity or even an unsuspecting stranger. Donate to the Food Bank, volunteer at a pet rescue, send a card to a friend who needs a lift, buy the person behind you in line a coffee... no Act is too small to count. Perform an Act of Kindness and tell us about it! Simple as that.

This event will earn your team SPIRIT points. All spirit points are added up and the team with the most SPIRIT points at end of the games will earn CHALLENGE points. For complete details visit our Points and awards page


All events your team signs up for and participates in will earn your company PARTICIPATION points. These participation points are added directly into your CHALLENGE total - so the more of these you gather the better the chances of winning your division! Check each event page to find out how many PARTICIPATION points you will earn. For complete details visit our Points and awards page
