• Fourth Annual Race to the Pint Challenges Three Local Industries to Focus on Clean Water


    Clean Water is important to everyone, regardless of who you are or what you do for a living, and most will agree that Cape Cod has unique and growing challenges regarding the water that is both beneath and surrounds us. 

    Cape Cod Beer’s Annual Race to the Pint 5k/10k has always been about driving education around the importance of clean water.  In 2019 the race coordinator (SEMC), host (Cape Cod Beer) and beneficiary (BCWC) all want to “raise the stakes” and are challenging three specific industries to get more involved.  The three industries being targeted in 2019 include: Banking, Contractors, and Lumber Yards, and this has resulted in three separate industry CUP CHALLENGES named as followed:

    • The Cape Cod Banker’s Cup Challenge
    • The Cape Cod Contractors Cup Challenge
    • The Cape Cod Lumber Yard Cup Challenge
    Each “Cup Challenge” hopes to pit businesses in the same industries against each other to get the most employees, spouses and subcontractors participating in the 4thAnnual Race to the Pint being held at Cape Cod Beer on Saturday April 27th
    The idea came from a friendly competition between two local banks, and then grew when other industry professionals heard about it.  Each team (or business designating a team) will get points for Runners, Walkers and Volunteers who sign up for the Race.  At the end of the race the points will be tallied, and three LARGE cup trophies will be award.  Along with bragging rights and the ability to keep the Cup for the year, the winning teams will also be honored with a plaque at the brewery, and a private brewery tour and party with the owners of Cape Cod Beer.
     
    Clean water matters to everyone – whether we’re talking about drinking water, wildlife habitat, or the salt and fresh waters we use recreationally.  Keeping our waters clean and mitigating damage once it is done is a complex problem that needs more attention.  Race to the Pint and its partners hope to be part of the solution – along with our local industry leaders.  We believe that if we work together we can all make a difference.
