THE countdown to Hobart’s hotly contested “Race for Research” is on, with The Mind Games 2022 officially launched this month.
The Mind Games is an action-packed annual event that sees corporate teams of five try to out-smart and out-race their competitors in a series of exciting and imaginative challenges designed to test their skills, creativity and teamwork.
Aimed at highlighting the importance of workplace wellbeing, the event has raised more than $150,000 for the Menzies Centre over the past two years. The funds have been used to support a range of projects, including the research of Post-Doctoral student Adam Nebbs.
“Having fun at work is a big contributor to mental wellbeing and it’s great to see how many Tasmanian organisations recognise that,” The Mind Games founder Sherri Ring said.
“We’re fortunate to have the support of our Gold Sponsor Aurora Energy, our Silver Sponsor TasGas and our stage sponsors who will create our team challenges.
“Last year we saw teams involved in activities like assembling power towers, building muffin stacks, creating superhero costumes and cooking the ultimate pancake. We can’t wait to see what our sponsors will come up with to challenge our teams this year.”
The Mind Games is open to up to 50 teams, and with spots filling fast Ms Ring encourages workplaces to sign up soon.
“The Mind Games is the most fun you’ll have at work,” she said.
“I can promise you lots of laughs and loads of entertainment, as well as rewards from knowing that you are contributing to mental health research.”
The 2022 Mind Games will be held at The Goods Shed at Macquarie Point on 25 February. Teams can register now at www.themindgames.com.au
