Summer Games for Special Needs

June 17 2014

For the past nine years, every year, Kids On The Move, or KOTM, holds what is known as the Corporate Sports Challenge. Recently, SpinGo participated for a second time in this event.

Kids On The Move, or KOTM, provides services throughout Utah County assisting children with special needs and providing aid for families in need.  Their mission is to support the development of young children through three main programs: Early Intervention, Early Head Start, and Autism Bridges.

The Corporate Sports Challenge aims to bring successful, community-minded companies together to support the mission and convictions of KOTM.  Every company participant donates time, money, and energy to ensure children receive the help they need to have a better chance at a successful life.  Adobe, Instructure, SpinGo, and other successful companies compete in diverse games, such as Laser Tag, Dodgeball, Rock Climbing, and Tug of War. All of this is done to see who will be crowned the champion of the day. In the end, the children are the true winners.

Last year, we learned hard lessons on what happens when you play games for the better part of 8 hours, under the sun, and forget to apply sunscreen and drink plenty of water.  This year, SpinGo came prepared – we were well hydrated, came in with base tans, and brought our game faces.

SpinGo CEO, Kreg Peeler, has been involved with KOTM for the better part of 10 years.  SpinGo cares about the community. We want people to be active, get out and do something, and in turn, enrich the lives of others.  We’re thrilled to support KOTM, and we’re very proud to be a part of their mission.
