B&G Club 4th Annual Capital One Race For Kids

Pipestone Flyer

It’s not a run. It’s not a walk. It’s something different! The Boys and Girls Club of Wetaskiwin is excited to announce that their 4th Annual Capital One Race for Kids event, with local Presenting Sponsor, the Flaman Group of Companies, is set to take place on Saturday, June 6th at 10:00 am.

Building on the success of the inaugural Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada 2012 event, adult corporate, sport, school, family and friends teams will experience a fun bonding experience as they challenge their skills while raising funds so all boys and girls can have the same opportunity. Although this event takes place across Canada on the same day, all funds raised locally stay in our community.

“We are extremely pleased to have the Flaman Group of Companies back as our local Presenting Sponsor as well as a number of other key Major Sponsors including Denham Ford Sales and the Home Hardware Distribution Centre.” stated Debbie Pearson, Fund and Communications Coordinator.

“With the Wetaskiwin A & W continuing their yearly fundraising effort for the Club by donating $1.00 from every Teenburger sold prior to week of the event, and CopyKats Print Centre and W1440 station back to help with promotion plus the six teams registered already, we are off to an awesome start!” continued Pearson.

There are two ‘streams’ for competitors as the Club recognizes that some teams are out for the trophy and others just to have fun and support local children and youth. There are prize incentives in both streams as well as the WestJet Travel Voucher, donated by WestJet to any WestJet destination to be won by the Top Individual Fundraising Prize person. There are great incentives for the teams in the Clubs Major Fundraising event of the year.

If you require more information on team and individual registration, or are interested in Sponsorship opportunities, please contact Debbie Pearson, Fund and Communications Coordinator at 780-352-4643 extension 32.
