We are honored to continue our partnership with the Make-A-Wish® Foundation by supporting the Cookie Chase.
San Leandro, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2012
Otis Spunkmeyer, the leading frozen cookie dough fundraising brand, is a proud sponsor of the Make-A-Wish® Foundation of Colorado’s Cookie Chase 5K – A Race for Wishes happening April 13th in Greenwood Village, CO. The Cookie Chase is a certified, timed 5K race that winds through the beautifully groomed streets of Greenwood Village. A 1K family fun run is also available for youngsters and youngsters at heart.
The Make-A-Wish® Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy not only within the United States but for children in 35 countries.
The Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Fundraising program has a special cookie to honor this organization. Emily’s Rainbow Chocolate Crispy was developed by Emily, a Wish Kid, at an annual day of baking and fun at the Otis Spunkmeyer in San Leandro, CA. There, Wish Kids paired with Otis Spunkmeyer culinary staff to develop their own cookie recipes.
Participants at the Cookie Chase can sample Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, make their own cookie creations at a cookie decorating station, and purchase tubs of pre-portioned frozen cookie dough, including Emily’s Rainbow Chocolate Crispy cookie, with proceeds going to Make-A-Wish® Colorado.
“We are honored to continue our partnership with the Make-A-Wish® Foundation by supporting the Cookie Chase,” comments Liz Rayo, Director of Business Development for Otis Spunkmeyer Fundraising. “Leveraging the magic of fresh baked cookies to raise money for Wish Kids is an extremely rewarding experience for us all.”
