Race Edition: July-August 2016

Kicking the five-city Race Edition food drive into gear, Alex Tagliani with his no. 18 Team EpiPen® race car, and Food Allergy Canada will launch the Allergy-Friendly Food Drive Challenge at downtown Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square on Thursday, July 14 (11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.), to encourage non-perishable allergy-friendly food donations. The initiative provides an opportunity for the public and media to speak with Alex about his experiences living with severe allergies, supported by allergy management tips from Food Allergy Canada. The first 18 food donors will receive a ticket to the Honda Indy Pinty’s Series (valid in Toronto on July 16, 2016), after which fans will receive a signed Alex Tagliani t-shirt while supplies last. Donations will be accepted from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Racing fans in Edmonton, Saskatoon, Trois-Rivières and Antigonish can support the Allergy-Friendly Food Drive Challenge by donating non-perishable food items this summer. Fans will receive tips from the team on how to read a food label and how to help identify potential common allergens in everyday foods. For a list of participating races, please click here. All donations will be delivered to a local food bank following the race.
