Shelby dropped off some Stout gloves at the United Way InKind exchange in Edmonton in December. He also raised money for a tricycle race between himself and United Way Alberta Capital Region CEO Rob Yager.

Rob has been with the United Way in Edmonton for many years. He’s a born and raised Edomontonian and is passionate about helping his community by supporting non-profit agencies in the city.

A big thank you to Red-L Distributors https://www.redl.com/, and Accurate Supply https://accurate-supply-ltd.myshopify.com/ in Nisku for their generous donations.

Thank you also to PCL Construction for the loan of the tricycles, it looks like Rob, Shelby and Jimmy had a blast. To find out who won you’ll have to watch.
