WiseChoice Foods, a minority-owned, female-led company based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, will hold its the third annual WisePies Pizza Run on June 4 at the Aperture Center Park in Mesa del Sol. It will be sponsored by Albertsons Market and benet the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Mexico. “Make-A-Wish New Mexico is fortunate to have the support of community partners like WisePies Pizza, who step up year after year to make sure we have the resources necessary to grant life-changing wishes,” said Sara Lister, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish. “We are grateful that they help us bring joy to the souls of our wish kids.”
The WisePies Pizza Run is expanding locally with participation expected to double to 600 runners and virtually with an increase in participation in other markets across the nation. This annual event will continue to feature a one-mile fun run/walk designed for families and light activity, as well as timed 5K and 10K runs to challenge experienced runners.
Attendees and participants can expect to enjoy music, prizes, celebrity runners, family-friendly activities and hot pizza for all participants and volunteers.
“We want to keep granting wishes until there’s no more to grant. It’s a privilege to be able to support the Make- A-Wish Foundation of New Mexico and have a small part in the larger impact this organization is making in the lives of children experiencing critical illness,” said Season Chavez, president of WiseChoice Foods. “I’m impressed by the support of our incredible community sponsors including our title sponsor for the second year in a row, Albertsons Market, and our location partners, Mesa del Sol and Guzman Construction Solutions. Our new sponsor partners include M&F Auto, our exclusive wellness sponsor Molina Healthcare, the City of Albuquerque and the new Truly Lounge brought to you by Admiral Beverage Corporation.
