Summit DD Team Goes Head-to-Head in Akron Corporate Challenge

The Akron Corporate Challenge is an athletic competition promoting employee wellness, company camaraderie, and business networking while helping local charities. The Summit DD Team participated for a third consecutive year and placed 4th out of 16 teams. Other competitors included large organizations like Gojo, Bridgestone, Signet Jewelers, and more. Overall, 72 Summit DD staff and family members participated in the tournament! 

“It was great to see so many staff come together and represent the Agency. There were a lot people who were meeting for the very first time. It helped to break down barriers and build staff morale. That’s really what this is all about. We hope to keep doing this year after year,” shared Kristen Olesky, Summit DD’s Human Resource Development Coordinator. 

Together, the Summit DD Akron Corporate Challenge team brought home the following accolades: 

  • Softball – 1st place
  • Footgolf – 2nd place
  • Tug of War – 3rd place
  • Bowling – 3rd place

Last year, Summit DD placed 6th out of 11 teams, so this is a big improvement in just one year! The team hopes to snag gold in the near future, so be on the lookout in 2019! Thank you to our staff who were committed to competing and practicing for almost two months. Your dedication speaks volumes!
