Raise your Timmies alongside Mix 96 as we welcome Spring in the Central Plains with the Tim Horton's Portage Community Coffee Run.

Watch for us as we "coffee bomb" Portage la Prairie! We could show up anywhere with free coffee, hot chocolate and other prizes so make sure you listen for clues throughout the day! The Tim Horton's Portage Community Coffee Run is presented by Paraclete Transport, Mayfair Print Shop, Keystone Sports Excellence, Portage Mall and Royal Lepage Portage Realty.

Have an idea where we should be? Let us know during the Mix 96 Morning Show with Pearl Tymchuk @ 204-239-2965 on our Facebook page or Twitter account using #BrewedAwakeningPortage
