1031 Virgin Radio Twizzler Challenge for St.Amant!

March 20, 2015

Have you heard of the Twizzler Challenge?? Much like the Ice Bucket challenge for ALS, the Twizzler challenge aims to raise money for autism. It all began at Night Of Too Many Stars when Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black) and Willie Geist (The Today Show) were dared to do a Lady and the Tramp routine with a Twizzler if they got to $100,000 on the telethon. This has taken off with other celebrities and regular folk doing the challenge, posting their video, donating to an autism cause and challenging others.
1031 Virgin Radio’s Ace Burpee Morning Show has initiated the challenge in Manitoba in support of St.Amant! CLICK HERE to watch Ace & Chrissy do the challenge and challenge others in the local media.
Our own President & CEO, John Leggat also took up the challenge, CLICK HERE to watch.
If you would like to do your own video this weekend you can challenge others and donate at stamant.ca/twizzlerchallenge. You can also share other videos on social media; retweet from Twitter and share from Facebook all of the posts from the St.Amant channels and/or the 1031 Virgin Radio channels.
Thank you for your support!
