All of the Buzz is about the Queen Bee and the Goodwill Bee-Tique!

Next weekend the 2017 Queen Bee Half Marathon takes flight and Goodwill is ready for the big launch! As a Royal sponsor of the 2017 event, Goodwill’s team of worker bees are buzzing away putting the final details together for the debut of the very popular and newly expanded “Bee-Tique” at the Expo on Friday, October 6th! The Bee-Tique will feature an assortment of running gear at unbeatable prices as well as the buzz-worthy and oh so fun, “Selfie” station right next door.

Queen Bees in Training!

Also, for the first time, Ohio Valley Goodwill is very excited to announce that the organization’s team of “New Bees” will be buzzing around the 4 Mile event on Saturday morning. The team members are made up of individuals who participate in Goodwill’s Community Access program and their coaches. The “New Bees” have been training for the big day and are ready to take flight. Goodwill’s Community Access program is designed to provide social and recreational opportunities for individuals with disabilities and is one of many programs offered by the organization.

This year’s Queen Bee looks forward to more than 5500 participants and all will have a chance to visit the Expo and the Goodwill Bee-Tique on Friday, October 6th. Busy bees should fly by the Goodwill exhibit booth to find out how to win a luxurious spa pampering basket truly fit for a Queen. Hint: If you’re a ‘good bee’ you can bring a donation and receive a chance to win a bee-u-ti-ful spa pampering basket. The lucky winner will be announced Saturday, October 7th at the post-race party.

Finally, Goodwill will be tweeting all of the exciting Expo and Queen Bee race highlights at #goodbee. Don’t miss your chance to post your best Queen Bee “selfie” with royal accessories provided by Goodwill!
