15K Scoops Grand Rapids 2023: Rosa Parks Circle

August 4, 2023

Our last, but certainly not least, 10,000 Scoop Challenge took place where it all started back in 2010: Grand Rapids, Michigan! Our team headed down to our home city on August 1, 2023, to celebrate our 50th 10K Scoops event by handing out not 10, but 15,000 scoops of Country Fresh Original Moose Tracks Ice Cream and donating $15,000 to Kids’ Food Basket.

The event took place in Rosa Parks Circle and the energy was electric. We had face painters, giveaways, a 360-photo booth, and a lunch bag decorating station for Kids’ Food Basket. The attendance was incredible, and Rosa Parks Circle was flooded with friends, coworkers, kids, families and local celebrities.

We invited special guests to hand out ice cream, like the Grand Rapids Mayor, Rosalynn Bliss, Grand Rapids Police Chief, Eric Winstrom, Grand Rapids Fire Chief, Brad Brown, Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce CEO, Rich Baker, Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Deputy Director, Kathy Angerer, and morning talk show hosts, Lori Maranda Cook, Michelle Dunaway, Ruta Ulcinate, and Max White. Crash, the West Michigan Whitecaps mascot, also made a special appearance and spread joy with our mascot, Tracks, by interacting with kids and families alike.

We hope you had a chance to stop by and say hi! Tag us in your photos and use the hashtag #10KScoops!
