Corporate Champions Vancouver Surpasses 2010 Participation Levels!

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2011) - Corporate Champions Vancouver (CCV), facilitator of health, wellness and fitness to Lower Mainland businesses, is excited to announce that a record number of people will be participating in its upcoming annual multi-sport challenge: CCV 2011.

CCV is Metro Vancouver's annual multi-sports challenge for businesses. The unique event is the largest of its kind and promotes health & wellness, employee engagement and business development opportunities. Running from May 28th to June 17, CCV 2011 provides businesses large and small the opportunity to compete against each other in a variety of team sports.

The inaugural CCV season in 2010 saw 30 companies and over 600 individuals participate. This year over 1,000 individuals from a wide range of businesses are already registered to participate in this one-of-a kind event. Companies registered for the 2011 season include:

The value in what CCV 2011 offers Lower Mainland businesses is evident in its rapid and sustained rise in popularity. CCV provides businesses a meaningful solution to address the human resources issue of job-related stress - a significant annual cost for businesses in Canada (estimated at nearly $12 billion annually). Moreover, CCV provides participants with a platform for developing a more cohesive and collaborative workplace. When employees socialize with their co-workers, cross-departmental communications, team-building, and company pride tend to improve. There is also opportunity to network and connect with other participating businesses in a relaxed setting.

Taking place at premier venues such as the Richmond Olympic, competitions run outside of business hours and include eight co-ed recreational sports, in addition to a Women's division and Men's 35+ divisions. On-site child minding for select sports is provided for busy parents wishing to participate.

This year, CCV 2011 will kick off its Opening Ceremonies at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex on May 28, 2011 at 11am. Co-founder, Andy Nguyen is eager to showcase their message of health and work-life balance. "Corporate Champions Vancouver believes a company culture that strives to find a balance between work and play for its employees really understand the recipe for successful human resources strategies. These are the companies that we know understand our mission and purpose, and we are thrilled that so many companies of a wide range of types and sizes are appreciative of what we offer. We work hard but we play hard too!"
