Seventh Annual “Amble with Angus”

The Seventh Annual “Amble with Angus” is coming up on Friday, December 12th 2008 @ 7:30am. This is an event Angus Cowan (an individual who Sandra coaches personally), Ideaca (who Sandra works for) and CBC have organized over the past six years to support the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank. And again this year, early on the morning of December 12th, hundreds of athletes (runners and walkers) will brave the cold temperatures to run approximately five kilometers in support of the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank. Last year CBC raised over $525,000 in support of this organization during its on-air campaign. Invite your friends, family, co-workers, customers to participate. The event is a lot of fun. There are also some pretty unique costumes each year which have been fittingly rewarded.

Microsoft and Gord’s Running Store have supported this event for the past five years. Draw prizes have included Running equipment, the Xbox, Microsoft software, games, and other Microsoft goodies. This is a unique opportunity on CBC Radio for sure. The event occurs live “on air” during the peak air time of the CBC morning show, the Calgary Eye Opener. CBC opens the doors to the studio and production area after the run for refreshments.

Participant or Volunteer
15-20 volunteers are required to run this event safely.
All participants of any ability are welcome to run in the event as well.
Entry is a food or cash donation to the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank.
