PRODIGY GROUP ANNOUNCES PRESENTING SPONSOR FOR THE AMAZING RACE

Description: TD Small Business 

Victoria, BC – The Prodigy Group announced that its presenting sponsor for the 2011 Amazing Race (April 9, 2011 – 11:00 AM) will be TD Small Business Banking.  This is the first year the Amazing Race has included a presenting sponsor and this partnership with TD Small Business Banking has allowed for an expansion of the race route to include more challenges and allow for more teams to participate.

One of the key initiatives of the 2011 Prodigy Group Committee is to host the 3rd Annual Amazing Race.  The Amazing Race is an adrenaline-boosting team event that involves over 12 challenge stations throughout Victoria at both public locations and business locations.  This year’s race takes place on Saturday April 9th. Participants will have the opportunity to test their problem-solving skills, teamwork and fitness as they race around the city trying to complete the challenges as quickly as possible. 

This year we are expecting over 60 – 80 participants and the race will take about five hours to complete.  We will finish up with a chance to congratulate the winner and share race stories over drinks and appetizers at Club 9ONE9 in the Strathcona Hotel.

Funds raised from the Prodigy Group Amazing Race will go to supporting the Prodigy Group 2011 charities of choice: Community Micro Lending and Junior Achievement BC

 

There are still spots available to register or volunteer for the race.  Visit our website www.prodigygroup.ca to register a team or email specialevents@prodigygroup.ca for volunteer information.

The Prodigy Group is a diverse network of emerging business professionals who reside in the Greater Victoria Area.
