Our sponsorship of Banff Jasper Relay a great success!

Our first year as the title sponsor for the Banff Jasper Relay on June 2 was a great success! The teams were eager to run this amazingly beautiful 260km course along the Bow Valley Parkway and Icefield Parkway, the volunteers were enthusiastic and kept everything moving smoothly, the weather cooperated and the sun shone the whole day! What a great event!

We were very pleased to provide sponsorship for the race, in the form of a race director/project manager to ensure everything was coordinated and ready for race day; a webmaster who designed and built the event website (www.banff-jasper-relay.com); and an application developer who created a custom online team and runner registration system.

We also provided coordination with the Brain Tumour Foundation, the charitable recipient of the funds raised by the teams – over $12,000 so far this year, and over $500,000 since the race began in 2005. The money raised this year will go toward funding a new resource for caregivers of those affected by brain tumours.

One Day Web Group believes in giving back to our community in impactful ways. Our involvement in the Banff Jasper Relay as a sponsor was in memory of our friend, Garth Huck, who lost his battle with brain cancer. We celebrate his life by supporting the event in his honour.

We’re looking forward to next year’s event!
