HISTORY

The Workday Silicon Valley Challenge is celebrating its 11th year and has given $1,410,000 in prize winnings to over 65 different charities. Over the years, we have hosted a world class group of individuals from a variety of fields including technology, finance, healthcare, telecommunications, politics, sports, viticulture, and cuisine. Some notable participants include, Condoleezza Rice, Mike Weir, Julie Inkster, Mia Hamm, Aneel Bhusri, John Donahoe, Jerry Yang and more.

The competition is fierce and the pressure considerable, and 10 different teams have earned the champions title. In 2015, the team of Condoleezza Rice, Mary Meeker, Mia Hamm, Lila Barton and Marissa Mar was the first all women’s team to win, beating out 19 predominantly men’s teams.

The 1 hour program covering the Challenge is aired on NBC Sports Bay Area following the tournament and is hosted by famed announcer, Ted Robinson. It highlights all the highs and lows of the competition which proves to be a source of great joy and sometimes agony for those who dared brave the day.

van Dillen Partners is dedicated to continue to build the Workday Silicon Valley Challenge into the premiere event of its kind focused on making the experience authentic, memorable and fun.
