Frequently asked questions
What is the day like?
Boston Children's Hospital Corporate Cup is an afternoon of field-day events and friendly competition among the business community, all while raising funds for the hospital. Companies create teams to compete. Winners are announced in a closing ceremony. Then there's the afterparty, where foes become friends over food, drinks and bragging rights.
How do I get there? Where do I park?
By public transit, take the Red Line to Harvard Square and the complex is a 10-minute walk from the Square down JFK St. and over the Charles River. The 66 and 86 route MBTA buses also stop in front of Harvard Stadium.
By car, enter through Gate 8 or Gate 16 and parking staff will direct you to available parking.
