Guts + Glory
Team Obstacle Challenge

Guts + Glory Team Obstacle Challenge presented by Home Trust, is a unique athletic fundraiser, designed to build team spirit and push individual limits of speed, strength, endurance and agility. This experiential event appeals to competitive and philanthropic professionals.

Ryerson's Mattamy Athletic Centre, formerly Maple Leaf Gardens, will be transformed into a premiere event facility on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, 5-11 p.m.

This is an exciting event that builds team spirit among colleagues. Mix corporate representation from different departments on your team or register multiple teams, and invite co-workers to cheer you on!

The Guts: 40 teams of six will compete in 10 events. Each element will require your team to work hard and work fast. Your team’s athletic prowess and stamina will determine 2/3 of the team’s overall score. Points will be awarded, egos will rage.

The Glory: The challenge extends beyond the athletic events; we are asking participants to tap into their networks and raise funds to support homeless youth. Teams will fundraise a minimum of $10,000 to participate, and 1/3 of the team’s overall score will be based on their fundraising success. The more the team raises the better their chances of winning the coveted Guts + Glory trophy! Knowing the money raised goes to Covenant House makes victory that much sweeter.

Show no mercy. It’s all about guts and glory! If you want to sign up, and you are a team of six that can raise a minimum of $10,000, we want to hear from you.
