Benchmark and Bulls

The Spirit of the West was alive and well at the recent 55th annual Strathmore Stampede. The record-breaking turnout was a testament to the strong community culture in Strathmore and the determination to bring everyone together for a great event! Royal LePage Benchmark saddled up this year as a sponsor and participant to raise money for the Wheatland Crisis Society through the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation.

Making eye contact with a charging bull seems small in comparison to the courage it takes women and children to flee domestic violence, however, Royal LePage Benchmark’s  Christopher Pitman hit the ground running alongside other participants to outrun a group of raging bulls.

The Running With The Bulls event in Strathmore is a town favourite and Royal LePage Benchmark raised over $3,367.00 through donations for the event.  All proceeds will go to the Wheatland Crisis Society.

Across the rodeo grounds, the Royal LePage Benchmark Strathmore Office hosted the Beat The Bull competition.  Where Stampede participants both young and old were able to try the 8-second ride.  These mechanical bulls were no match for some eager cowboys and others, well.. they tried.

Enjoy the highlight below and plan to attend next year!
