For the last 7 years, Denali Moosetracks has hosted the “10,000 Scoop Challenge” in close to 30 different cities. Since its inception, the goal has been to use ice cream as a way to raise funds to support The Salvation Army in each location of the challenge. In May, Denali Moosetracks reached out to The Salvation Army of Greensboro about hosting a 10,000 Scoop Challenge here in our amazing city. The goal was quite simple, to have the largest ice cream social Greensboro has ever scene. On top of already getting FREE Mayfield Moosetracks ice cream there was an even better incentive. For each scoop that would be given out, Denali Moosetracks would donate $1 locally to The Salvation Army.
On July 24th, the city of Greensboro gathered downtown at LeBauer Park to take part in our first ever 10,000 Scoop Challenge. The event started at 11AM and was kicked off with a loud countdown from five. Throughout the morning and early afternoon we had various “celebrity” scoopers who joined us. Some of the celebrity scoopers were, Greensboro Grasshoppers players, Mayor Nancy Vaughan, multiple FOX8 personalities, and even the Greensboro Swarm mascot. Needless to say, it was an extravagant day of ice cream, music, celebrities, and Doing The Most Good. At 2PM we officially ran out of ice cream and hit our goal of 10,000 scoops!! Who knew ice cream could do the most good?
