in the buckets for the win

it was stressful for me too just watching it

This exercise had participants slingshotting footballs

into the goal zone where team mates were to catch them in these bags. That was fun.

Then there was a dance off with the “Green Men” The shorts were to protect the junk from jangling too much in public.


 The Dance Off – sorry it’s all over the place, it was a hot mess everywhere.

From
the Famous Philadelphia Challenge to Adult-Tricycle Races, sixteen (16)
enthusiastic corporate teams battled to not only earn the coveted title
of ‘Philadelphia’s Phunnest Company,’
but for the opportunity to raise money for the Philadelphia’s Ronald
McDonald House and the countless families who benefit from the
organization’s work. 


On to the bike races to the 50 yard line and back.


It’s not as easy as you think and there were a lot of spills

But everyone seemed to have fun.
