Bee Amazing Race 2018

We thank all participants for your involvement and support of our Amazing Race, not only this year, but also for your continuous support over the years. We hope to see you all next year!  

43 people participated in the Food Drive and together donated a total of 284 items. 87% (246) of the donations were high demand items.Thank you to all participants for your involvement in this year’s Heart Smart Be(e) Amazing Race! We had a lot of great competition and involvement in extracurricular events to earn badges!

A big THANK YOU also goes out to Trevor Flexhaug for being our behind the scenes wizard and setting up and keeping our website running smoothly! Also, thank you to Lukas Neamtu, Supporting Our Students, the team at the SU Food Bank, and Karen Ogilvie, Calgary Campus for helping organize and run our Food Bank Challenge!

Again, we want to offer our sincerest apologies, as we understand that the initial theme of the Be(e) Amazing fitness challenge made some members of our University community uncomfortable.  Recognizing this and understanding why offense was taken, we wish to apologize.  This, of course, is completely counter to our goal with this campaign, which is intended to create a campus-wide culture of inclusivity and support as we all seek to reach our health and wellness goals. Our goal to achieve wellness throughout campus is very important.
