Once you have workplace or group on board, go to our registration page and sign up! This will officially register your team. The person who registers will be the team captain and our main contact. Share your team page with the other members and encourage them to sign up online and start fundraising!
The competition time is about 30 – 35 minutes (depending on how fast you sort!), but the entire time commitment is about an about an hour and a half. Everyone is encouraged to stay and watch the competitions and enjoy the event after your competition is completed.
Be sure to make time after your competition time and head over to Jack Astor’s Lansdowne! That’s where the after party is! Great deals on food for Food Sort Challenge participants, a DJ, and games to keep the fun going all day long!
Parking tickets are for the underground parking at TD Lansdowne Park. Thanks to our Parking Sponsor, Stericylce, each time will be issued one parking pass. Any additional parking is at team’s expense. We encourage carpooling! There should be no problem with parking before 6 p.m.
You must be able to stand and move at a steady pace for 30 minutes. Some bending and lifting may be required. In the past, we’ve seen people work up a bit of a sweat – it all depends how competitive you are.
Yes, the Aberdeen Pavilion is fully accessible. The competition involves a fair bit of movement, but we will certainly make accommodations if requested. Please let us know if your team requires any accommodations in advance.
We always encourage people to wear costumes… everything is better when dressed up. But other than that, dress in layers so you can take adjust accordingly to temperature. No heels or open-toed shoes are permitted for safety reasons.
Each competition area will have a coat rack for your layers and bags.
