On Friday, Reality Rush ran a custom team-building event for the Executive Staff of Teach For America on the sunny beaches of Santa Monica, California! TFA was holding their annual staff training retreat and Reality Rush came in to run an afternoon of team-building challenges for the group.

The TFA Staff split up into five teams including the Yellow Team, Green Team, Gray Team, Red Team and Blue Team. After some hard-fought competitions that challenged their mental, physical, and teamwork skills, as well as reinforced the five TFA “Core Values,” it was the Blue Team that came out on top and won the coveted “Copa de Core Values” trophy.

Thanks to our TFA group for a great afternoon!


Reality Rush’s Grand Opening Event was a huge success and we can’t wait for more to come! On Saturday, 21 teams of two competed in an afternoon urban adventure / scavenger hunt where they explored Los Angeles by solving clues and completing challenges.

Congratulations to all of our URBAN HUNT participants, especially team Hundglauskas for their impressive first place victory, and team Hair Club For Men for winning the Costume Contest! We hope everyone enjoyed the adventure, meeting new friends, and discovering new parts of Los Angeles!
