Cornhusker State Games, WellPower, and Lincoln Corporate Games
Nebraska Sports Council organizers are gearing up for the 38th annual Cornhusker State Games with 70 sports taking place, mostly July 15-24 at locations in and around Lincoln. Opening Ceremonies on Friday, July 15 will feature a free-style moto-cross exhibition along with the usual favorites: skydivers, fireworks and torch-lighting.
As event-planning continues, thousands of Nebraskans are winning prizes in the WellPower Challenge by walking, running, biking, rowing and meditating. That’s right, meditation, healthy sleep and other mental-wellbeing activities have been added to the Council’s activity-tracking website. The WellPower Movement, still free and available year-round for individual users, also provides group functions used in wellness programs of more than 200 companies.
Speaking of companies, now is the time for companies to register for the Lincoln Corporate Games, which offers company-vs-company competition in 11 events in Aug.-Oct. The list of events includes Bowling, Cornhole, Golf, Fitness Walk, Fun Run, Trivia, Volleyball and more. Companies are divided into divisions based on number of employees. A leaderboard is updated after each event and the overall points champion gets a traveling title belt.
