A recap of the 2018 Be Our
Superhero Field Day

We were a proud sponsor of Special Olympics New York for the third year in a row— and this year, our amazing community raised more than $37,492.50 for the Be Our Superhero Field Day in Latham, New York. 

Teams dressed up as their favorite superheroes and participated in tug-of-war, relay races, pie-eating contests and more. Our friends from Albany Distilling were also there handing out samples. 

We created a mug specifically for this event with a superhero-inspired medallion to raise money for the cause. And our community did not disappoint — it sold out on our website in less than two hours, and 100% of the proceeds went directly toward Special Olympics New York. 

Death Wish team members had an amazing time at the event meeting athletes, coaches, and families and caffeinating the event's attendees. After all, coffee can make anyone feel like a superhero. 

To our coffee-loving community, thank you! None of this would have been possible without your dedication to such an inspiring cause.
