Your food should be extra fast today.
That's because running back Charles Roberts will be one of eight Winnipeg Blue Bombers taking part in the 15th annual McHappy Day.
One dollar from every McMuffin, Happy Meal and Big Mac sold at McDonald's restaurants today will go to the Movement Centre of Manitoba, which improves the health of children and adults with physical disabilities.
The Bombers will be behind the counter at the McDonald's at Ellice Avenue and St. James Street.
Their shifts are as follows: Blair Atkinson and Matt Sheridan (11 a.m. to noon), Roberts and Neil Fulgueras (noon to 1 p.m.), Troy Westwood and Jordan Matechuk (1 to 2 p.m.), Jermese Jones (2 to 3 p.m.) and Cory Huclack (3 to 4 p.m.).
FORMER BLUE HONOURED
Former Winnipeg Blue Bombers fullback Wade Miller has been honoured for his business prowess.
The Caldwell Partners have named Miller, who retired from the CFL in 2005, to its "Top 40 Under 40" list. It features Canadians who demonstrate vision and leadership, innovation and achievement, impact, community involvement and contribution, and growth/development.
When not patrolling the field for the Blue and Gold, Miller co-founded Pinnacle Staffing, Manitoba's largest recruitment firm, and in 1998 opened the first of two Elite High Performance Sports Injury Centres.
He also obtained the Manitoba rights for the Booster Juice franchise.

Global's Joe Pascucci will be the master of ceremonies, and the event will also honour Zivan Saper, the former president of both the Canadian and Manitoba Curling Associations.
