JUMP ROPE FOR HOPE
Van Halen was clearly on to something when, in 1984, they sang “Ah, might as well jump!” Jump Rope For Hope is our hit team building program that combines the excitement of a favorite childhood activity, with the reward of helping those less fortunate. Travel back with us, as we recreate childhood memories, all while building new toys for underserved children. Oh, and did we mention that you’ll leave grinning from ear to ear?!?!
After flight crews (teams) are formed, and the “game frame of mind” is established through a fun ice-breaking activity, the competition begins. Using iPads® and BridgeTheApp™, our one-of-a-kind proprietary game app, flight crews complete photo, video, and trivia challenges to earn the materials they need to build their own jump ropes and hula hoops. That’s right . . . your team members will feel like Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, or Henry Ford . . . in the world of jump ropes, that is!
A distribution of talents is essential, as teams race to beat the clock. Those who are mechanically inclined will likely focus on the hoop construction. Those who are more cerebral often find themselves focusing on the trivia challenges. And those with a dramatic flare tend to lead the team in its “presentation,” which will be performed for all, toward the event’s conclusion. No matter what task participants excel in, success, and winning the gold medals is nothing more than a hop, skip, and a jump ahead.
No event of this nature is complete without a performance competition. Professional jump ropers have appeared on TV shows including “America’s Best Dance Crew,” and “America’s Got Talent,” among others. That’s right . . . now it’s your turn to play “(Your Company’s) Got Talent”!!! Which team has what it takes to outshine, out market, and out maneuver its competitors is anybody’s guess. The stakes are high. Bring it!
Does that all sound intense? Don’t fret . . . all of our events are designed so that individuals of all physical and athletic abilities may actively participate. Creativity runs abound in Jump Rope For Hope, so participants have the ability to contribute their individual strengths. And, our professional facilitators are there to guide your participants to success.
At the conclusion of the event we hold a short presentation, where your jump rope and hula hoop donation is handed off to the charitable recipient (usually a local chapter of the Boys & Girls Club), instilling a sense of personal pride and goodwill. A surprise visit from some children may accompany the charity representative, when possible, to personally accept the jump ropes and hula hoops, thus furthering the inspiration for your group and without a doubt causing hearts to shake, rattle, and roll.
As with all BridgeTheApp™-powered events, shortly after its conclusion, your inbox will contain a link to a web page where all of the photos and videos, captured by your participants, will be available for viewing and download.
To ensure an outstanding experience, aspects of this event may be modified to maximize the benefits for your group size, makeup, available time, and other variables.
