It’s game on as corporate teams meet outside the workplace to bring their team spirit and best game for two days of fun competition at one of Innsbrook’s signature events, the annual Richmond Corporate Games in its 32nd year.
It’s a good time had by all as teams from all over Richmond vie for the championship and bragging rights through a series of friendly competitions like the Canoe Relay, Volleyball, Obstacle Challenge, 500 Yard Relay, Human Foosball, Thread the Noodle, Zany Relay, and Tug ‘o War. Each competition requires a wide variety of skills – strength, speed, coordination and good old-fashioned teamwork.
Aside from the fun, competition and camaraderie among all the participants, the primary purpose of the games is about raising money for the Special Olympics Virginia. It’s about the dynamic of bringing people together as they offer their time, talents and financial resources in a program of people helping people – and this teamwork has raised well over $100,000 since 1998 for the Special Olympics Virginia.
Whether you are a competitor, fan supporting your favorite team or a volunteer, these games are fun-filled and exciting for everyone who attends.

Bring your friends and family to support this important cause!
In 2016, a total of $15,908.00 was raised at the event to donate to Feedmore which will provide approximately 79,540 meals for children, families, and seniors who are hungry.

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Innsbrook’s first Taste of Virginia 2016. Let’s team up at TOVA 2017 to exceed last year’s charity efforts!
