When April rolls around, the weather isn’t the only thing that heats up in Kansas City. Competition also heats up as companies from around the area gear up for the Kansas City Corporate Challenge (KCCC). Cerner team captains round up their athletes for practice sessions, and talk strategy on how to maintain our impressive winning streak.

KCCC is a great way for associates to interact and network with other companies in the Kansas City area, while also showing our competitive spirit.

As the competition promotes a healthy lifestyle and staying active, it also challenges individuals to push themselves to achieve their personal fitness goals. Kushal Gurung, software architect, has participated in KCCC since 2012 in the 5k and half marathon events.

“It definitely keeps me motivated to train hard,” said Kushal. “I am extremely happy with the improvements I have made since 2012.” Since starting in the competition, Kushal has achieved his personal goals in these two events - one to run a 5k in less than 20 minutes and the other to run the half marathon in less than an hour and 30 minutes. “It is an amazing feeling to participate in the KCCC events representing Cerner,” Kushal said.

And senior graphic designer, John Arneson, captain of Cerner’s KCCC biking team and winner of his division, agrees. “KCCC promotes a healthier lifestyle and brings together a diverse community in so many events. I love the comradery and value provided to Kansas City and Cerner.”
