A rainy day ended in sunshine at the Parkinson Recreation Centre. On September 25th, Impact Events partnered with Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs to raise money for charity with the annual Great Bacon Chase. BC Pork Association and Reid and Associates Financial Planners generously sponsored the event.
Participants ran in their rain gear to each 1KM bacon stop. They were then treated to a pancake breakfast and even more bacon! Guest vendors livened up the breakfast with music and gelato. Kids won free Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs memberships and other prizes at our own booth.
The sun came out during breakfast time, warming up the morning. Participants left with full bellies and good memories. We are grateful to Impact Events and their sponsors for supporting charities with this fun event!
