A group from Yorktel recently came together to participate in a teambuilding activity that also gave back to the local community. The team worked together and ultimately built and donated 16 brand new high-end remote controlled (RC) racecars and 16 superhero capes to children associated with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Louisiana. The event took place at Le Meridien in New Orleans, LA on January 23, 2024.

Yorktel chose a program called “Crazy Carz 4 Kidz – Quiz Wiz Edition” in partnership with Impact 4 Good, that would be competitive and fun for participants, while making a difference. Impact 4 Good ( is a company that runs socially conscious teambuilding programs. During the activity, 100 participants competed in a challenging video trivia game show utilizing their computers and smart devices. Once the game began, points were awarded for correct answers, as well as bonus points for the fastest correct answer! After the points were tallied, and the winning team determined, the teams received the materials needed to make high-end remote controlled racecars and superhero capes. The cars do not just represent a brand-new gift for a child, but also a sense of freedom while staying in the hospital. The superhero capes provide children with a sense of power and strength during a time of their lives where they and their loved ones need it most!  Based on performance in the car-themed challenges, one team took home the victory, but the real winners were the kids!
