The original plan for the Hospitality Hustle was for an in-person 5km walk/run around Burnaby’s Deer Lake, followed by brunch at Hart House Restaurant. The event was intended to raise funds, as well as raising awareness of the importance of mental and physical health.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the initiative has expanded into a province-wide virtual event: hospitality workers, as well as foodies who have missed getting out and dining, can get moving by training for a province-wide #HospitalityHustle, to take place on May 31, 2020.
Keeping social distancing front of mind, we encourage participants to pick an activity – walk or run 5km, dance for an hour, skip, prance, skateboard, or bike 10km – and start training today. Please follow the advice of our medical professionals and keep your training in your neighbourhood. Then on Sunday, May 31st our entire community will virtually get their ‘hustle on’ for hospitality!
