Virtual Team Challenge

Virtual Challenge

The Virtual Challenge Ended May 8, 2020 - Together and Windsor Proud We Reached the Finish Line!

Message from the President

I want to congratulate all those who participated in the Let’s Get Moving Virtual Team Challenge. A total of 330 campus employees joined a record number of 62 teams and together, in 4 weeks, we reached out into outer space with more than 136 kilometers combined. This was a wonderful opportunity for us to connect across the institution at this time when we are separated.

Challenge Winner:  Teamo Supremo - Bradd Bezaire, Ann Elliott, Alisa Giroux-Souilliere, Angela Kojok, Zora Savic (captain) and Sara Smitherman

Best Team Name:  Going the Social Distance (captained by Elisa Mitton)

Honorable Mention:  Oh, the Place We Don’t Go! (captained by Denice Shuker)

Even though this Challenge has ended, I would encourage you to stay connected with your campus colleagues as we continue to work remotely.

Robert Gordon
President & Vice-Chancellor
