Bay Street Games
On June 17, 2021, Capitalize for Kids hosted the 4th Annual Bay Street Games – the ultimate fitness competition between Bay Street firms. Co-ed teams of six faced off in a series of virtual fitness challenges. While the athletic events were all challenging, they allowed for participants who range in age and technical ability to participate from their remote location. At the end of the event, the winning team was crowned Bay Street’s Fittest Firm! Congratulations to CPPIB for taking home the trophy.
To prepare teams for the competition, we hosted complimentary virtual training sessions led by our gym partners. They were offered for the six weeks leading to the event, every Thursday at 4:30 PM.
THANK YOU TO OUR 2021 PARTNERS

Finisher: Burpee Beep Test
Designed by Element CrossFit
Only one person nominated from your group of six will compete while the rest of you cheer them on. Every minute on the minute, they will complete:
6 chest to ground burpees (+1)*
*After each minute, 1 rep is added to the total amount of reps they need to complete in less than one minute (first minute 6 burpees, second minute 7, third minute 8, and so on). The time you have left after completing your reps is your rest time until the minute is up. If the person can’t complete the required reps within that minute, then they don’t progress to the next round of burpees.
