-The Rainforest Trail Run Team
Celebrate Indigenous cultures on September 29th, 2019 with inaugural 5k Run/Walk and Festival
Headquartered in East Vancouver, Victory Creative Group partnered to launch the brand & digital platform for the Rainforest Trail Run set for this Sunday. Local creative leaders, Mark Starkey and Mario Soriano, built a team of creative and digital designers in the East Village to support this year’s event. The event organizers, the Achilles International Track Society is pleased to announce that the Victory Creative Group will be a founding sponsor of the inaugural Rainforest Trail Run, a unique 5k Run/Walk in the urban rainforest in Central Park, Burnaby, BC.
Starting at 10am at Swangard Stadium, the run celebrates the rich heritage of the Indigenous cultures on whose lands we all live. The Run and Festival are being staged on the traditional, ancestral and unneeded territories of the Coast Salish people: Musqueam, Tseil-Waututh, Squamish, Qayqay and Kwikwetlem.
Mark Starkey said “Victory takes civic responsibility very seriously, and we feel our strength as an advertising agency is to give back where our passion exists: sport and creativity. The Rainforest Trail Run, it’s leadership and their mission really inspire our organization.”
“Mark Starkey has consistently proven that Victory is a genuine community supporter of sport and active lifestyles. Victory’s sponsorship is an excellent demonstration of their commitment to honour Indigenous communities and promote healthy lifestyles through sport and physical activity.” said Achilles Society President, Doug Clement.
There will be a festival component, including music and dance, in Swangard Stadium beginning at 10:45am. Everyone is invited to participate in the Rainforest Trail Run and can register at www.rainforesttrailrun.com
