WRESTLING WITH HUNGER TO SET WORLD RECORD AND STOCK FOOD BANK SHELVESPORT COQUITLAM, BC – With corporate donations down and the shelves at the food banks becoming bare, ECCW Pro-Wrestling and Dave.ca Communications Inc. are hosting a world record and fund raising event – WRESTLING WITH HUNGER – for SHARE’s food banks.
Twenty wrestlers will grapple around the clock for three days (April 2nd to 5th) at Hyde Creek Recreation Centre in Port Coquitlam, BC to raise money and food to restock the shelves at the food bank and to set the world record for the longest wrestling show.
In 2007, the three food bank depots operated by SHARE in the Tri-Cities provided food to 1,142 households totaling 5,598 people. 45.1% of the recipients are children and youth under the age of 19 – an increase of 8.1% over the previous year. The need for donations at this time of year is great.
Schools, businesses, churches, organizations and individuals are encouraged to setup their own food drives and then bring the donations to the Wrestling With Hunger event location at the Hyde Creek Recreation Centre in Port Coquitlam. Volunteers will collect the donations and folks can watch the pro-wrestling world record attempt.
From noon to 2pm on Sunday, April 5th everyone is invited to bring a can of food for SHARE and watch the last two hours of this world record event.
