TRIBE Charity Challenge

TRIBE Charity Challenge
May 25 – June 26
TRIBE Charity Challenge registrants will be organized into teams of 6 – 8
people by the Wellness Centre staff. Teams will then compete to earn points
for the duration of this 5-week fitness challenge. Points are awarded for
completing cardiovascular, resistance, flexibility training and group exercise.
Earn bonus points through TRIBE circuit training, submitting a TRIBE Spirit
photo or completing Pop-Up challenges. The TRIBE to earn the highest
amount of points will select a registered charity of their choice to donate the
challenge monies to.
How do I sign up?
1) Click here to register on-line.
2) Come to the Wellness Centre desk and make a minimum $20.00 donation using a debit or credit
3) Try on a sample t-shirt and tell us what size you want (the cost of the t-shirts are being covered by the
Wellness Centre, so the total amount you’re donating goes directly to charity).
How does it work?
Teams will be formed to include members with strengths in 4 areas of fitness – cardio, resistance, flexibility
training and group exercise. Each team will be provided matching coloured t-shirts and a corresponding team
If you would like to pay more than the minimum donation we encourage you to do so – any additional monies
collected will go to the winning team’s charity. To increase motivation and awareness, each team will be
asked to identify the charity they are playing for at the start of the challenge. Participants of the winning
TRIBE will receive a tax receipt for an equal portion of all donations given in their name to the TRIBE’S
selected charity. Visit the Loop to learn more about Nexen’s charitable donation matching program.

Pop-Up Challenges
To Be Announced
‘Pop-Up’ challenges will be announced at the beginning of the weeks they occur allowing
teams to complete the challenge sometime during that week. This is a great way to earn
bonus points and show your competitive spirit.
How do I track my points?
Record your exercise minutes after each workout in the TRIBE Charity Challenge binders at the main
Wellness Centre desk. Each week we will tabulate scores and post the results in the Wellness Centre. This
information will also be sent to each team via email.
What if a team member drops out partway through the challenge?
Teams may continue the challenge if they lose a team member due to injury, medical reason or if a member
leaves the Company. Weekly team scores will be adjusted to allow smaller teams to remain competitive for
the remainder of the challenge.
If you have questions or require clarification, please call or email the Wellness Centre staff.
