On July 7th, Agropur had the honor of sponsoring the charitable event, Kickin’ it with the Cows. The 5k/10k run/walk and family fun event is hosted and organized by the not for profit, Dairy Cares of Wisconsin.
The event was a great opportunity to celebrate fitness and show pride amongst the dairy industry leaders as we collectively gathered for a greater cause. In addition to spreading the messaging on “Better Dairy. Better World.”, Vic Grimm and his son Jaden were able to speak to the crowd on behalf of Agropur as well as his personal gratitude towards Children’s Hospital for the role they’ve played in their life. BiPro protein waters were enjoyed by participants of all ages, most prominently under the Festival Foods tent and greeting runners at the finish line.
Agropur team members across the US facilities were invited to participate at the run in De Pere, WI and virtually! A few small teams and individuals gathered in support of fitness and the cause. Looking for ways to bring us all together is what we’re all about, and we look forward to continuing our participation in this event for years to come.
