Mayor Colin Basran's 'One Bag Challenge' - Troika

Posted by | July 29, 2016 | News | No Comments

Our very own Renee Wasylyk was nominated by Mayor Colin Basran for the One Bag Challenge. Not familiar? Read about it and watch his original video here. The One Bag Challenge is a twist on the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’, where Kelowna locals are challenged to bring a full bag of food to the Greater Okanagan Food Bank during the month of July, when¬†their supplies are at their lowest.¬†

Renee graciously accepted, and nominated five more people. See who she nominated by watching the video here.

But the fun didn’t end there.

Within 24 hours, Renee received two more nominations: from Kelowna – Lake Country MLA, Norm Letnick, and Kelowna City Manager, Ron Matiussi.

She decided to take the One Bag Challenge to the next level. See what she did here.

In just 10 days, the Greater Okanagan food bank collected 24,000. Congratulations and thank you to everybody that participated!
