How many hands does it take to pick up 3,000 pounds of trash in one hour?
Four hundred twelve by our count. On Tuesday, May 21, 206 Calgary Stampede employees came together to pick up trash along the banks of the Elbow River.
We divided into 12 groups, each deftly led by a team captain who laid out our sections and the game plan.
Armed with rubber gloves and trash bags, we hit the river banks.
Picking up trash on a sunny day with your co-workers is pretty great. Here at Stampede, we love our river so we were happy to give it some TLC.
Especially when it’s followed by hot dogs and ice cream.
Happy spring from the Stampede Family!
