The teams were split into countries 10 of 50, competing in a wide range of games. We played everything from laser tag to running the track and limbo competitions to shaking it at dance revolution. The event all went to raise money for a great cause, supporting BUILD Boston...and support we did, raising over 120k for young student businesses. There were 700+ attendees participating in 20+ games supported by BUILD Boston representatives and spectators out to cheer on the games.
Though Team Greece didn’t ultimately end up winning the games, we fought valiantly in Basketball (losing in overtime), the Mile (coming in 1st and 2nd) and Volleyball. Our team was made up of interns and employees of MediaMath, Insightsquared and TechGen and competed in almost every game there was, showing our support for BUILD’s mission of accelerating young student businesses.
Thanks to the members of our team who made Greece a force to be reckoned with, to TUGG for putting on an amazing event and all of the other attendees for coming out to support BUILD and the young students of Boston!
