Please note: all 5 team members need to be registered in advance so we can quickly process all 20 teams the night of. If you have any questions or trouble registering please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are happy to accommodate anyone who does not or cannot drink alcohol, however we need to know in advance. They can email me at email@example.com and I will make sure that they are taken care of the night of.
In the case of hotwings, if for some reason, one of your team members cannot eat hot sauce we can change the sauce to make sure they can participate in the event!
Finally, invite your friends! We have lots of room and would love to pack the place out so make sure that you remind your friends and family to come out and watch!
Wingin' it for Parkinson's was formed out of a desire to create an event which bridged two generations. We wanted to create something that would attract a younger audience while encouraging an older one.
What we strive for however, is an event that goes beyond just the wings and beer. We are committed to building a community that stands by the people fighting against Parkinson's Disease. We achieve this by being intentionally local. By partnering with Winnipeg businesses who are willing to step out and join a cause, we are able to help those who are often left to battle this disease on their own.
Life is better when you’re having fun...and eating wings.
Teams of five enter a tournament where only the fastest eaters will move on.
Each team member must eat five hot wings and drink an 8oz beverage. Once they finish, the next member of the team can start their wings and drink, and so on it goes.
Twenty teams will be entered, the first round is divided up into two waves, with the top three teams from both waves advancing to the next round.
The semi-finals will proceed with all six teams competing at the same time. Once again, the top three teams will advance into the finals.
The finals will have the top three teams competing for their name on the WiP trophy and bragging rights for the year!
