Staff Day 2017

Staff Day will be making its triumphant return to UNHQ on Friday, September 8, 2017! It will be a celebration run by staff, for staff, honouring the hard work and dedication needed to keep the Organization and its mandates moving forward.

You can join the fun by signing up for some of our activities:

Sports – The long-awaited sporting events scheduled for Friday September 8th will include: basketball (3 on 3), volleyball (6 on 6), flag football (8 on 8), soccer (6 on 6), 1-mile fun run, 4 x 100 relay race for men, 4 x 100 relay race for women, and tug-of-war (8 on 8). You’ll notice that all events, with the exception of the 1-mile fun run, are team sports. This is a great opportunity for your office to form a team and bond over a good game.
