From the mustard-slinging ‘Foam Finger
Pretzel Relay’ to ‘Human Roulette’ where competitors gambled their way
to the arena’s end zone, enthusiastic corporate teams pushed their
bodies, minds, and Philadelphia pride to the limit to not only earn the
coveted title of ‘Philadelphia’s Phunnest Company,’ but to raise money
for the PRMH and the countless families who benefit from the

at Shriners Hospital for Children- Philadelphia, joined the festivities

Folks had to move a mustard packet from the o yard line to the 50 yard line using chopsticks and ladles. It was as easy as you’d think.
