UT Dallas
Corporate Challenge 2017 Update 1

Get in the Game!



Great Walk & Opening Ceremonies


Don’t forget to stop by the Opening Ceremony and Great Walk this Friday, August 11, 2017, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at Galatyn Plaza (2351 Performance Drive, Richardson, TX 75082). In addition to free food and festivities for attendees, UT Dallas earns participation points for each team member who completes the short 10-to-15-minute walk. Just make sure you pick up a token at the walk’s start tent and drop it off at the mid-point check-in tent to earn points for our team. There will also be a UT Dallas team tent where you can meet up with your colleagues and family members, meet our Special Olympian, Justin Hoover, pick up your t-shirt, and enjoy refreshments.



Raffle Tickets


Corporate Challenge raffle tickets are available for $5. Each ticket buys you a chance to win one of three pairs of roundtrip airline tickets with hotels stays. All sales benefit Special Olympics Texas. Purchase tickets at the Office of Administration (AD 2.410), or call 972.883.2213 for more information.



Call for Volunteers


Each organization is responsible for helping with registration at one event during the challenge. UT Dallas has been asked to provide four volunteers for Badminton registration on Friday, September 29 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the UT Dallas Activity Center gym. To volunteer, please sign up online.



Sign Up for the Great Ride


Register online today for the 7th Annual Great Ride. This year’s group motor cycle ride will be held September 2 and will last approximately two hours, starting and ending at Galatyn Plaza. The event is open to anyone who would like to participate; just be sure to select UT Dallas during registration to help us earn team participation points. There is a minimum donation of $20 per rider, and $10 per passenger to benefit Special Olympics Texas. Breakfast and lunch will be provided to participants.





T-shirts will be available for pick up beginning Thursday, August 10, at the Office of Administration (AD 2.410). While the University covers the cost of the shirt, participants are asked to contribute a minimum $5 donation to benefit Special Olympics. This donation can be made in person at the Office of Administration (AD 2.410) when you pick up your shirt, or online through the team UT Dallas Corporate Challenge donation page. One-time donations also can be made through this same link.
