Get ready for your group to have a good time as they do good for others by competing in this high-energy team challenge resulting with a charitable donation to a local children's hospital! As participants enter the venue to the sound of upbeat music, they will make their way to their team table. This table will serve as their home base for a variety of competitive challenges. Teams won't be competing for themselves but will be competing to earn bonus items for the care packages they will assemble at the end of the program.
Children being treated at Children's hospitals are often very sick, recovering from significant injuries, or terminally ill. The hospitals do everything they can to make these children comfortable and to get them well. Now, you can help in their efforts by bringing smiles to the faces of these children as they open cheer packages prepared by your organization.
Welcome and Event Introduction
Our emcee welcomes the participants and explains how this charitable challenge works. Throughout the event, the emcee will introduce various challenges. Some challenges will take place around each team's table, some will require participants to walk around the room, and some challenges will require teams to send a representative to the stage.
Games and Challenges
The games and challenges teams will participate in are sure to bring back childhood memories and put a new spin on some classic games and pastimes. Sample challenges include:
Name That Toon - Can your team guess the cartoon by listening to a short clip of its theme song?
Rainbow Race - Teammates work together to create a beaded rainbow by stringing beads in rainbow order onto a string. The first team to string all of the beads in the correct order wins!
Picture This - Each team sends a person forward to the stage. The emcee shows each player a card with the name of an item. Players then take turns drawing a picture, giving all teams the opportunity to guess the item. The team guessing the most items correctly wins. Emcee Says - Just like Simon Says, teams must follow the instructions of the emcee. The last team standing is the winner!
Pop Quiz - All teams take a pop quiz that has them solving riddles, spelling challenging words (think spelling bee!), and answering trivia questions.
Jigsaw - Teams work together to assemble a giant jigsaw puzzle. The first team to complete the 100-piece puzzle will earn extra materials for their cheer packages, but all teams will feel good knowing all of the puzzles used in the game will be donated to the children's hospital.
Cheer Package Assembly & Decorating
After the games are played and bonus items distributed, all teams receive the items they will include in their cheer packages. Cheer package items may include coloring books and crayons, decks of cards, art supplies, craft kits, puzzles, and games. In addition to these items, participants will also assemble a super cuddly stuffed animal to go with each cheer package. The items (excluding the stuffed animal) are placed in white cardboard boxes, which are the perfect canvas for your group's creativity. A variety of decorating supplies are provided including markers, stickers, ribbons, etc. Imagine the hope and happiness your group will bring to the children at the hospital when they receive their cheer packages!
Before the event ends, a representative from receiving organization will speak to the group. They will share stories of the children who will certainly be cheered by these wonderful donations and extend a heartfelt thanks to your group for their generosity.
