Ever Wanted To Play ‘Supermarket Sweep’? NoCo Grocery Grab Is Back

NoCo Grocery Grab In Colorado
Growing up with only the free network television station for most of my younger days, I watched quite a bit of "Supermarket Sweep" and always thought it would be awesome to be able to run through the grocery store and grab as much stuff as I could. Needless to say, when I heard there was a local version of this coming to Northern Colorado to help raise money for the Partners mentoring organization last year, I was superexcited. I was even more excited when contacted to host this awesome event.
Partners is a local nonprofit in Northern Colorado whose mission is to "empower youth and community members to achieve their full potential through mentoring, prevention education, and strategic partnership." The organization came up with the idea for its local version of the "Supermarket Sweep" when the COVID restrictions halted the annual St. Patricks Day 5K in Old Town Fort Collins. The NoCo Grocery Grab was the perfect solution as a replacement to drive awareness to Partners and its mission, as well as raise the needed funds to support all of the amazing work it does in our community.
Last year's inaugural event, hosted by yours truly, was such a huge success that it's coming back for 2022. If you'd like to get in on the action and have your shot to run around Lucky's Market in Fort Collins and fill your cart full of goodies, get the full scoop and your tickets here. Hope to see you on April 3 for the second annual NoCo Grocery Grab.
