A Deliciously Sweet Pat on the Back July 27 2010
Please indulge us for a minute while we give ourselves a bit of a belated – albeit well deserved - pat on the back. Earlier in the fall, Urban Venus launched and organized our first community event – a run in support of The New Science Centre 2011 Project. Despite the less-than-ideal weather, the Urban Venus Deliciously Sweet Run had over 400 dedicated runners show up to Edworthy Park - nearly triple what we expected for our first event. We like to think it was the promise of Buttercream Bake Shoppe cupcakes, as well as mini manicures and the highly coveted Urban Venus spa treats that awaited them at the finish line that brought in the crowds.
It may have had more to do with the cause, The TELUS World of Science Centre, which will open next year. Located next to the Calgary Zoo on Memorial Drive, the centre will be a cutting-edge, interactive learning facility which will foster innovation and imagination in the minds of everyone from young children to educated professionals.
An exciting highlight of the event was that vitaminwater chose it for the Canadian launch of their new product: vitaminwater10 (a flavoured water with only 10 calories). Many of runners also received great prizes from our other sponsors, Ski Snowboard Cellar and Getta Gift.
We’d like to thank all the runners who came out that day, as well as the sponsors and volunteers. The 2011 New Science Centre Project believes that inspiring minds create a stronger community. At Urban Venus, we believe the same. We hope you are inspired to come next year.
