10K Scoops Traverse City 2024: Rotary Square

June 21, 2024

Our second 10,000 Scoop Challenge event of 2024 was incredible! The team traveled up to Traverse City, MI, on Thursday, June 13, and of course we had to bring Cherry Moose Tracks to the Cherry Capital of the World! Moose Tracks partnered with Country Fresh to serve 10,000 scoops of FREE Country Fresh Cherry Moose Tracks and Original Moose Tracks Ice Cream and raise $10,000 for The Salvation Army of Traverse City.

The event took place in Rotary Square, which was surrounded by local businesses and located just a couple of blocks away from Lake Michigan. It was a gorgeous summer day – not too hot or cold to grab a free scoop of Cherry Moose Tracks and Original Moose Tracks. We had an amazing crowd from beginning to end and our wonderful volunteers from The Salvation Army of Traverse City were a huge help in scooping and handing out ice cream to all who joined.

We invited local celebrity scoopers like TV news reporters, city administrators, police officials and Coast Guard officers to help us hand out ice cream. The Traverse City Pit Spitters official mascot, Monty, joined our mascot, Tracks, and handed out goodies to the crowds. Speaking of goodies – We gave out exclusive merch like Cherry Moose Tracks bucket hats, friendship bracelets and Traverse City-themed stickers 🍒 The turnout was outstanding!

Our first 10,000 Scoop Challenge of 2024 was a success! The team traveled to Tampa, Florida, on Thursday, June 6.

Many wonderful volunteers from The Salvation Army helped us set up, scoop, hand out ice cream and happily greet all who joined.

ABC Action News Tampa Bay (WFLA-TV) joined us in the afternoon, and Mayfield’s official mascot, Maggie the Cow, joined our mascot, Tracks, for tons of fun photos with the crowds. We even had a face painter and photobooth on-site for people to enjoy all day long.

10K Scoops 2024 Tour Stop #2: Traverse City, Michigan!

June 10, 2024

Michiganders, we’re headed back to our home state! We’re bringing our 10,000 Scoop Challenge to Traverse City on Thursday, June 13 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Rotary Square! We’re partnering with Country Fresh to serve 10,000 scoops of FREE Original and Cherry Moose Tracks Ice Cream in a citywide ice cream social benefiting The Salvation Army of Traverse City. 🍒

For every scoop eaten, we’ll donate $1, with the goal of scooping 10,000 Country Fresh Moose Tracks Ice Cream cones and raising $10,000 for the Salvation Army in just four hours.

We need your support and participation to reach this goal! If you like ice cream and are in the Traverse City area, join the fun and enjoy a free scoop on us!

You might be wondering why we chose to host in Traverse City? Last year, we hosted our last event of the season in our hometown – Grand Rapids. We thought it was only fair to take the excitement up north to share our love for Country Fresh Moose Tracks Ice Cream. Our friends at Country Fresh launched Cherry Moose Tracks as a summer limited time flavor, so what better place to celebrate this flavor than in the cherry capital? Best of all, we get to support Traverse City’s local community programs through The Salvation Army while doing it – it’s a win-win!

More details on the city and exactly who you can expect to see our 10K Scoops event in Traverse City are listed on our Facebook event page and below:

10K Scoops Raleigh 2023: City Plaza

June 29, 2023

This year, the 10,000 Scoop Challenge tour stopped in Raleigh, North Carolina, for an event in the heart of the Raleigh at City Plaza! Moose Tracks partnered with Hershey’s Ice Cream to serve up 10,000 scoops of Original Moose Tracks AND Banana PB Moose Tracks to families, coworkers, summer campers, and more. The best part – for each scoop served, Moose Tracks donated $1 to The Salvation Army of Wake County with a goal of serving 10,000 Scoops and donating $10,000. Well, the mission was accomplished, and $10,000 was raised to support vital local programs in Raleigh!

This event was extra special because two delicious flavors of Moose Tracks were served. Of course, Original Moose Tracks is scooped at every event, but the city of Raleigh was in for a unique treat with a second flavor option! Banana PB Moose Tracks, which features banana flavored ice cream with peanut butter flakes and famous Moose Tracks Fudge, was a huge hit!

The event started out with periods of solid rain, but Raleighites did not disappoint – as soon as the rain cleared, ice cream fans came in large groups and ate multiple scoops to support reaching the 10,000-scoop goal. This lofty goal was no match for Raleigh!

Join the Screen Freeze Initiative with Moose Tracks Ice Cream!

May 26, 2023

Hello Moose Tracks fans!

We’re thrilled to announce our new initiative, Screen Freeze!

In response to growing concerns about the effects of excessive screen time, we’re challenging ourselves and our community to take a technology hiatus once a month to savor the sweet moments with friends and family.

What is Screen Freeze?

Screen Freeze is our commitment to promoting a balanced lifestyle.

On the fourth Sunday of each month, we’ll refrain from posting on our social media channels and invite you to join us! For 24 hours, we encourage you to swap your digital devices for real-world experiences that bring joy and connection to your life.

Why Screen Freeze?

In our increasingly connected world, it’s easy to lose ourselves in the endless scroll of social media and digital screens. While these tools offer many conveniences, they can also contribute to feelings of stress and isolation. Excessive screen time can disrupt our sleep patterns, reduce our productivity, and even impact our overall mood and mental health.

By participating in Screen Freeze, you’re not just reducing screen time — you’re giving yourself a chance to disconnect, reset, and recharge. By swapping screens for more face-to-face interactions, you might be surprised by the joy and fulfillment that come from simple, off-screen activities. It’s about creating a healthier, more balanced lifestyle for ourselves and our loved ones.

What to Expect?

As Moose Tracks embarks on this Screen Freeze journey, every fourth Sunday of the month will see us take a pause from our social media activity.

During this time, you can expect to receive reminders in the days leading up to each Screen Freeze, helping you to prepare for your own day off-screen.

Please note that while we will continue to respond to any urgent direct messages during this period, all other messages will be attended to on the following Monday

We appreciate your understanding as we join you in taking this well-deserved digital break.

How to Participate

Participating in Screen Freeze is simple.

On the fourth Sunday of each month, take a break from your digital devices and enjoy the day.

Share your planned activities with us in advance or your experiences after by tagging us on social media!

Sweet Moments with Moose Tracks

Remember, the essence of Screen Freeze isn’t just about reducing screen time — it’s about carving out time for what truly matters. When we put away our devices, we make room for meaningful face-to-face connections, time in nature, and other off-screen activities that bring joy and fulfillment to our lives.

This initiative encourages us to reclaim our time and attention to invest it in experiences that make us smile and bring us closer together. Whether that’s a cozy family movie night, an outdoor adventure, or simply indulging in a scoop of your favorite Moose Tracks Ice Cream, it’s these real-life moments that make our days truly special. Join us in the Screen Freeze initiative, unplug to reconnect, and let’s together foster a community that values real-world connections. See you on the other side of the screen, Moose Tracks Family!

Remember to keep it cool, keep it sweet, and savor those Moose Tracks moments.
