Crowe Horwath employees have enjoyed Magnovo team building events before, but their recent Bike-a-Thon™ charity event just prior to Christmas included a heaping helping of holiday cheer for both participants and local kids.
Crowe Horwath Invests in the Future of Oak Brook, IL
What started as a cold, windy, sunny day in Chicago for Crowe Horwath leaders would end with warmth, cheer, and good feelings about the future.
This group of 100 participants gathered at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Oak Brook, IL for a team building event just a few weeks prior to Christmas. Despite having participated in several Magnovo team events before, the leaders from Crowe Horwath already knew that each experience is different than the last, and this day’s event was no exception.
The group chose the Magnovo Bike-a-Thon™ charity event as their central focus. The team warmed up with a few fun activities that helped to set the tone for the main objective. Throughout the event, teams were handed challenges and games that required them to work together to complete the construction of bicycles that would later be donated to their selected charity, the True Value Boys and Girls Club.
This event served as an investment in Crowe Horwath leaders, but equally important it provided goodwill in the community.
Spreading Holiday Joy Through Charity
Leaders often recognize the importance of their role in the workplace, but don’t always realize their influence extends beyond the boardroom. Crowe Horwath members were able to see firsthand how their communication skills and team efforts benefit others both inside and outside their company.
This particular event couldn’t have occurred at a better time. The group gained valuable insight into their fellow team members, while also helping to make Christmas a little brighter for area children.
The event concluded with a visit from Ayala lrela, a representative of the True Value Boys and Girls Club. She was as excited to collect the bicycles as the employees were to donate them. The team agreed that there was no greater joy than spreading holiday cheer to those in need. Not only did they put smiles on several children, they were also able to offer those families hope and comfort during the holiday season.
