Desiree Ficker (and happy hour) at Rogue EQ!


Head to Rogue Equipment after work on Friday and unwind with a unique event featuring four of our favorite things: elite athletes, live music, cookies and free beer!

The Got Guts 5K race organizers are behind the festivities, combining their packet pickup with bottles of RedBridge beer (a gluten-free beverage, brewed without wheat or barley), live music and an appearance by Desiree Ficker, our local world-class elite triathlete. Desiree will be here at 4:00p, armed with samples of the gluten-free cookies that she is currently developing.

The race itself, happening on Sunday, support celiac disease awareness and include a gluten-free food fair with samples and products from various event sponsors. Desiree will also be at the race to talk with the Got Guts participants about being a professional athlete with celiac disease and the gluten-free diet that goes with it; she will then be available for Q&A. Proceeds from the race benefit the local and national Gluten Intolerance Group.

The Happy Hour is open everyone, race participant or not, and will take place from 4-8p. Make sure to stop by, try out some RedBridge and have a chance to meet Desiree Ficker!
