Posted: Updated:

The Legacy YMCA in Bessemer hosted the 1st annual corporate games charity event yesterday.

"The Olympic-style, co-ed team competition will celebrate health and wellness in the workplace while increasing employees morale and emphasizing team building and communication," according to a news release. "The variety of events range from a one-mile run to a hula hoop it up, egg toss competition, and frisbee chaos, all in good spirit of competition and fun."

Bessemer Mayor Kenneth Gulley opened the ceremonies.

"The experience your employees will receive will not only boost morale and employee satisfaction, but will also encourage wellness and productivity. The games are carefully formulated to improve communication, eliminate stereotypes, build trust and encourage physical activity. This is a great way

to show your employees how much they are appreciated, while improving the productivity of your organization at the same time."

The following companies supported and participated in the event: Bessemer Chamber of Commerce,

Bessemer Police Department, Bob Sykes Bar B Q, City of Bessemer, First Financial Bank, Medical West Hospital, Pepsi, Plantation Manor, and Todd Paden Reality and Appraisals.

Each person who participated received one week free membership to the Legacy YMCA.

The money from the registration fees will help the Legacy YMCA support the 3rd Grade Swim and Water Safety Program and 7th grade Free Membership Initiative.
