It is with excitement that on Saturday, June 25th the Salopek & Associates team will be running 10K to support Calgarians who are in need of food. For thousands of people in Calgary, putting food on the table is a struggle – and I don’t mean 10K kinda struggle! Of the 140,000 Calgarians who came to the Food Bank last year for emergency food hampers, 43% were children!
The struggle is real, and sometimes right next door – so we are going to team up and run in support of the Calgary Food Bank, doing our part to help put quality, nutritious food on the table of Calgary families who need it most.
We would love if you were interested in joining us as a runner (it’s free to Register!) – your involvement and support to help raise funds and awareness would be sincerely appreciated.
Not a runner? We would love for you to consider sponsoring a member of our team (check out my fundraising page or Janet Salopek’s) as we Run to Renew and replenish the Calgary Food Bank during a time when donations are fewer and not at the forefront of people’s minds. Together, with your support, we can make a difference in the health of Calgary families.
Also – in recognition of the support the families of Fort McMurry also desperately need at this time – Salopek & Associates will be matching any donations raised by our team up to $1000.00. So your support will go twice as far (all the way to Fort Mac in fact – which is way longer than 10K!)
From the entire Salopek & Associates team, thank you in advance for your support, generosity and effort in helping us raise awareness and funds for the Calgary Food Bank and Calgarians in need.
