On 7th January, we are delighted to hold our first CSR CHALLENGE! – The Supermarket Race Challenge! for 2017. A total of 26 participants from Edwards Lifesciences (HR and Finance Department) had participated in this event. The participants raced around Sentosa and Vivocity, attempting team based challenges to earn the grocery list and budget to purchase the items from the supermarket. The purchased items will be for one of our official beneficiaries – Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF). Working closely with CCF in identifying their needs, the items bought will be given to their children during CCF’s annual children’s camp. As part of CCF’s effort to normalize camp experiences for their children and aid in their development, the 2017 children’s camp was themed “Shine like Stars”. We sincerely hope that the groceries will be put to good use during the camp, in giving energy and a boost to the children! On behalf of CCF and FOCUS Adventure, we will like to give our appreciation to Edwards Lifesciences for their contribution and their efforts in partaking in this meaningful teambuilding event!

Each team will be tasked to build a robot together. After which they will be going through the learning session on manual controls and how to control them. This will allow their robots to be unique as compared to the rest. Their final objective will be to pit the robot that they built against man-made obstacles such as to carry items and moving from point A to point B or to going through a maze or to dance! The possibilities is endless! They will then customise a message for the children using the robots built and have it delivered to the beneficiaries.


Learning Objectives


  • To understand that it is not always the results that matter but also the process
  • Engage participant’s imagination and problem solving skills
  • Increase confidence and commitment levels
    Allows greater meaning to giving and helping those in need
  • To tap on each other’s strengths and weaknesses

If you are looking for an exciting challenge with a meaningful element, The Supermarket Race Challenge! will be the program for you! Teams will get to earn cash by attempting a series of challenges along the race, in a bid to earn enough money to purchase essential items for the selected beneficiary. Given a limited time and facing multiple challenges, teams will have to plan carefully and make strategic decisions to optimize their resources, and purchase as many items as possible for a good cause.
