Join us for the 6th annual Hustle for Hunger!
Sunday April 7, 2013
Now in its 6th year Hustle for Hunger Calgary has raised over $25,000 for our charity of choice – the Calgary Food Bank. We encourage the 300+ annual participants to collect pledges before the race – this can be done online through the Running Room. For every $1 that the food bank is given they can distribute $4 worth of food! We also collect food donations at race kit pick-up and on the day of the event.
In 2012 our participants raised $4,600 for the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank and enjoyed a free BBQ, post-race snacks and refreshments and were eligible to win a variety of door prizes all generously donated by our sponsors - M & M meats, Sheraton Eau Claire, Good Earth Cafe, Lazy Loaf & Kettle, Famoso, Bullfrog power, Impact Magazine, Running Room, Eau Claire Market, Co-Op, Phoenix Fitness, Bridgewater Bank, Sportsandbags.com. A special thanks to Harvey the Hound for the warm up.
