WPR e-jawn: October 11th

Some Words from the Management

Last year when we heard about the robbery at Pasqually's, we wanted to show our support for them without just giving them a check, so we figured out a way to buy a bunch of pizza and make a run out of it at the same time and so the Pizza Mile was born. This year. we're doing it again and thankfully it's just for fun and not in response to any misfortunes.

But look out, there is a lot of other fun stuff coming up before then. Including our weekly run to Pasqually's this week.

Go the Extra Pizza Pile for Pasqually's - Tuesday, November 14th at 7pm

The Pizza Mile came about in response to an unfortunate crime last year and proved to be an incredible show of support from the community.

This year, we're doing it again...because we're idiots.

Starting at Pasqually's, participants will eat a slice of pizza and run a lap around the block for a total of three laps (which is pretty darn close to a mile) and three slices of pizza. You can participate with a team, walk, run, or crawl. It's all for fun and continues to benefit Pasqually's who are straight up awesome people.

First place awards for the men's and women's winner, naturally.

We'll be asking for a contribution from the participants to cover cost of the pizza, which should be around $5.

Run Ends at Pasqually's
