On Saturday, May 11, 2019, some of our farmers spent the morning and early afternoon serving chicken wraps to the 1600 walkers/runners, and their families at the 2019 Stollery Teddy Bear Fun Run and Walk.
In the last year alone, the event has grown from 1200 to 1600 participants! This year, the fundraising goal was 150k and the unofficial raised total has exceeded 175k. The event provides Alberta Chicken Producers exposure and the opportunity to engage with our target audiences as defined by our consumer research.
We would like to thank Sofina Foods for donating the chicken for the wraps and the Edmonton Expo Centre for donating their time to prepare the wraps. We would also like to thank Tiffany, Brandon & Jenny Spelt, Carson, Brooke and Charlene Nanninga, David and Charlene Hyink, Tara DeVries, Jacob Middelkamp and Sharon Boychuk for volunteering!
We look forward to an even bigger and better event next year.
