CCS completes the first-ever Kern County Corporate Challenge

After six weeks of intense competitive games, Chain | Cohn | Clark has completed the first ever Kern County Corporate Challenge.

Starting in May, our Bakersfield personal injury law firm went head-to-head with several other companies from throughout Kern County in the 2014 Kern Corporate Challenge. It was a six-week, Olympic-style competition that pitted similar-sized companies against each other in more than a dozen athletic and non-athletic games.

The entire competition was for a good cause: benefiting the League of Dreams, a Kern County sports league for children with disabilities.

Challenges include dodge ball, a 5K run, basketball, bowling, volleyball, flag football, golf, laser tag, soccer, softball, tug-o-war and more. Non-athletic events include billiards, poker and a T-shirt competition.

In the end, CCC came in third place overall. WorkLogic HR came in first place and AT&T came in second place. Here are a few other CCC highlights (and photos) from the Corporate Challenge:

  • Our poker team took first place.
  • CCC also came in first in the Biggest Winner weight loss competition. Our “biggest winner” lost a whopping 35 pounds in the six weeks of the competition.
  • Our fundraising team raised $1,350 in the fundraising competition, benefiting The League of Dreams. Thank you to the following people and companies who kindly donated funds for the league:
  1. Bob Montgomery
  2. Steve Roach of Quantum Data Systems
  3. Chris Thornburg of Brown Armstrong
  4. O’Leary’s Office Products
  5. Metro Record Storage and Shredding
  6. Sunrise Coffee Service
  • Our soccer team battled hard, inspired by the World Cup. Even CCS managing partner David Cohn got in the action, playing goalie.
  • Our flag football team also competed.
  • Volleyball was a ton of fun.
  • Our team came in second place in Corporate Challenge dodge ball.
  • Our pool sharks hustled the competition in billiards.
  • We won some and lost some in softball.
  • Our 5K team ran by most of the competition, coming in second place overall.

In the end, the 2014 Kern County Corporate Challenge was a success. The teams raised a lot of money for a worthy cause, CCS came together as a team, and the law firm got to compete against some worthy opponents. The Challenge is sure to be bigger and better in the years to come.
