Stronger Together:GMS and the Queen City Marathon

Welcome to the GMS Queen City Marathon - Much More Than a Race

The Queen City Marathon is a beloved, three-day community event bringing together thousands of runners, cheerers, and volunteers. As participants count down the days, GMS is proud to continue our partnership, honouring a rich history and dedication.

GMS: A Natural Fit with the Queen City Marathon

GMS shares a similar origin story with the Queen City Marathon. Our sponsorship over the years? It’s a natural fit!   
Just as local Regina runners created the marathon after noticing it was the only provincial capital without one, GMS roots are embedded in a small group of Saskatchewan people who saw a problem and found a solution.

Our Story

From "Broken arm? Sell the farm?" to Community Care

In the 1930s, a few individuals realized collaboration could prevent financial ruin from medical bills. Each person committed to contributing a set monthly amount to a fund for medical expenses, so a broken arm no longer meant selling part of the family farm. Since then, we’ve grown into a Regina-based non-profit organization dedicated to helping people manage health, dental, and travel insurance expenses.

Building Stronger Communities

More Than Just Sponsors

GMS continues a tradition of community building by reinvesting our profits into health-focused initiatives, aiming to give back more to our communities. Continuous improvement to our products and services enhances this support, and we’re proud of partnerships like our ongoing sponsorship of the Queen City Marathon.

We don’t simply donate money - our staff volunteer all weekend long. You might see us handing out medals, working at refreshment stations, and even participating in races.

Communities and individuals united by a desire to improve health and wellness are stronger, and that’s the heart of everything we do at GMS. We’re thrilled to be a part of the 2024 GMS Queen City Marathon – it’s an honour to support stronger, healthier, more active, vibrant communities. We’re looking forward to celebrating every step of your race with you.
