DEARBORN - The Corporate Cup Relays (CCR) event is a fun filled day of track and field competitions where employees from Ford, GM, Chrysler, AT&T, Autoliv, RedPlum and others vie for the CCR trophy.
The purpose of the CCR is to raise money for charity: Special Olympics (Michigan) and Friends for the Dearborn Animal Shelter (FFDAS).
This year’s CCR is on Saturday, June 15 at Southfield Lathrup High School. Participation in this event is open to salaried, hourly, agency, retired/alumni and supplier/supplemental employees located at a Ford site.
Morning events include 10k run, 5k run/walk, long jump, high jump and shot put. The afternoon events consist of various sprint and distance relays (100m – 1600m).
There will be an afternoon break in the CCR action to showcase the skills, heart and determination of the Special Olympics participants in a 100m dash. Also, there will be representation from the FFDAS for those willing to open up their home to a new cute and furry friend.

If you have a desire to participate then we have a spot for you on our team.
