A team of employees in the Office of Enrolment Management bested Mount Kilimanjaro to claim top honours in the Let’s Get Moving Virtual Team Challenge.
Through four weeks, Teamo Supremo — Bradd Bezaire, Ann Elliott, Alisa Giroux-Souilliere, Angela Kojok, Zora Savic, and Sarah Smitherman — managed more than 37,500 minutes of activity, equating to a climb of 7,519 metres, well over Kilimanjaro’s 5,895 m height.
Members will receive a lunch catered by Food Services when they are once again working in their campus offices.
“We really enjoyed the challenge,” says Savic, the team captain. “We made sure everyone tracked everything they did.”
UWindsor president Rob Gordon notes that the total of all 330 participants reached into outer space, with more than 136 km credited.
“Congratulations to all involved,” he told a virtual gathering Wednesday for the announcement of prize winners. “This was a wonderful opportunity for us to connect across the institution at this time when we are separated.”
Claiming the prize for best team name was “Going the Social Distance,” captained by Elisa Mitton; each member will receive a $25 UwinCASH card. The judges also awarded an honourable mention to “Oh, the Places We Won’t Go!” captained by Denice Shuker. Its members each won a reusable water bottle.
