GMS is the new Title Sponsor of the Queen City Marathon, taking place September 8th – 10th, 2017 in Regina.
“We’re so thrilled to sign on as the multi-year title sponsor of this flagship event,” said GMS President John Salmond. “The GMS Queen City Marathon encourages people of all ages and abilities to get active and it showcases our beautiful city. It’s a perfect fit with GMS’ commitment to helping people live well.”
“The Queen City Marathon is delighted to welcome GMS as our new title sponsor,” said Queen City Marathon Board Chair Cam Thick. “The continued strength of the Queen City Marathon does not happen on its own. The support of our sponsors, volunteers and the community of Regina have helped us grow to become the premier marathon event in our province today.”
GMS started getting involved with the marathon a couple of years ago as a gold sponsor and some staff participation in events. In 2016, GMS sponsored the Healthy Half Marathon and had several more staff running, walking and volunteering. With the unveiling of the GMS Queen City Marathon logo on January 12th, 2017 GMS is gearing up for its role as multi-year title sponsor.
“We have nearly 100 GMS employees based in Regina who are all excited about helping grow and develop this inclusive, health-focused event,” Salmond said. “It’s a great opportunity for us, and for all people in our city. Whether you want to volunteer, enjoy a walk with family, meet a personal fitness challenge or qualify for the Boston Marathon, the GMS Queen City Marathon has something for everyone.”
