United Way hosts 21st Corporate Challenge

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - More than one dozen teams of corporate "athletes" gathered at Southern Miss Saturday to get motivated for the annual fundraising campaign for the United Way of Southeast Mississippi.

13 teams got together at the Payne Center for the United Way's 21st annual Corporate Challenge.

The teams took part in fun and "challenging" events such as a basketball shootout, volleyball and a tug-of-war. The event is a prelude to the United Way's annual campaign kick-off.

This year, that will take place on Sept. 8th at Southern Oaks and Gardens.
