Road Race does not solicit sponsorship dollars. It is the mandate
of our event to provide for our participants, the very best, hospitality
driven, running event in Canada. To that end, Melissa's provides
and pays for all the rental items, entertainment, food and beverages,
as well as insurance, licenses, t-shirts and cash prizes. Melissa's
Road Race is not a fund raising event but has chosen over the
years to donate any profits generated from our road race, back
into the community.
the ninth year in a row, Melissa's Road Race will be donating
to the Daycare Society of Banff, the Banff Community Foundation, the Banff Rugby Club and the Banff High School's Green Team and Music Program. This will bring our contributions
back to the community to $101,000.00 to date. We are proud to
be a supporting partner to our hometown and our vibrant community.
