On your mark… Get set… GO!

Garrett Popcorn was excited to be involved at the BTN Big 10K this past Saturday. It was an amazing, fun-filled weekend benefiting the terrific cause of Special Olympics Chicago!

It all kicked off the month before the race as our Garrett Popcorn Teammates celebrated with BTN Big 10K and Special Olympics Chicago at Benchmark for a little pre-race tune-up. Of course, everyone fueled up with the treat of Handcrafted Happiness!

BTN Big 10K

On Saturday, July 26th we headed to the BTN Big 10K bright and early to setup our tent next to Special Olympics Chicago. There we shared our Handcrafted Happiness with over 15,000 attendees and participants!

Garrett Popcorn wasn’t just there to share our Handcrafted Happiness, though. Several of our Garrett Popcorn Teammates actually participated in the 5k and 10k races! While it was great to be there with Special Olympics Chicago, our Teammates were excited to participate in the races along with handing out our complimentary Bags of Handcrafted Happiness!
