Big Joe Challenge

Suzy’s Swirl is excited to announce that our 9th Annual Big Joe Challenge will be March 5th, 6th, and 7th. The Big Joe Challenge is a fun and exciting way that we raise funds for the American Heart Association! We challenge participants to enjoy 64 ounces of Suzy’s Swirl Yogurt, 8 ounces of toppings in 20 minutes or less! Sounds like fun doesn’t it? It really is so much fun!

This year we have taken steps to ensure our participants and customers continue to stay safe and have fun! Our participants will be able to sign up for a time slot and will be able to bring up to 3 friends or family members to cheer them on (with masks)! Each participant will also be socially distant from each other too! It’s going to be a fun and safe event!

There is so much happening in our world right now! The continuation of Covid-19, Illinois weather, Texas weather, in school and out of school learning and I know this list can go on and on! With everything that we are trying to navigate each and every day, it is so important to take care of ourselves in both body and mind! We can’t fix it all, we can help the American Heart Association and their dedication to fight Heart Disease and Strokes!

The Big Joe Challenge is in honor of my husband Joe, who passed away suddenly from Cardiac Arrest. Joe had Type 2 diabetes, had it under control, was otherwise healthy and in good shape! I could go down that rabbit hole of would’a, should’a, could’a but that won’t change what happened that morning!

As many of you may know, when you lose someone you love, there is a tear in the fabric of your universe. The loss leaves a void that will never be filled. Having a solid foundation made up of love and faith and by the Grace of God, my family is moving forward! It has taken time, I know our story is not over, we don’t get over it, we learn to continue to move on! I know without a shadow of a doubt Joe is always with us!

This is our 9th Annual Big Joe Challenge and our goal is to reach $3000.00 for the American Heart Association! Through the continued generosity of customers, friends, and family we know we can achieve our goal! If you would like to make a donation, you can come to Suzy’s Swirl and Buy a Heart to Save a Heart, you can participate in the Big Joe Challenge, and/or you can make a donation online at

Life is short, take a breath and step away from your zoom calls, hug your kids, call your Mom and Dad, make an appointment for a checkup, and don’t forget to stop by Suzy’s Swirl on March 5th, 6th and 7th to check out our Big Joe Challenge participants!

Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day
