Keyhole Software has proudly participated in KCCC since 2017, recommencing in 2023 after COVID-19. We initially joined to promote fitness and strengthen our connections in the Kansas City business community, but we stayed for the camaraderie, competition, and teamwork that come with the games.
What Is Kansas City Corporate Challenge?
Founded in 1980, KCCC is the country’s oldest and largest corporate games. With more than 33,000 participants, they unite organizations of all sizes across the metro in the spirit of friendly competition, participating in athletic events including weightlifting, track and field, swimming, table tennis, horseshoes, and everything in between. The 2023 season took place from April to June and was played at iconic Kansas City locations including Smithville Lake, Kansas Speedway, and Shawnee Mission Park.
Aside from the personal benefits to everyone who is involved in the games, each year a Kansas City-based charitable organization is chosen to benefit financially from KCCC. With a portion of every 2023 company registration, KCCC was able to donate to their charity partner, Cornerstones of Care. Giving back to the community is important to Keyhole, and participating in KCCC is just another way we are able to give back to the city so close to our hearts.
On behalf of all of us at Keyhole Software, we would like to say thank you to all the outstanding volunteers, competitors, and the KC Corporate Challenge organization for putting on another excellent event. We already can’t wait to bring our A-game in 2024!
