North Shore Credit Union Becomes Presenting Sponsor of the Vancouver International Triathlon
NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. (March 4, 2013) — North Shore Credit Union (NSCU) is pleased to announce it will become the Presenting Sponsor of the Subaru Vancouver International Triathlon. The annual event takes place July 14, 2013, at Spanish Banks in Vancouver and has been hailed as one of the “Top 10 Urban Triathlons on the Planet” by Triathlete Magazine.
Now in its 7th year, the Subaru Vancouver International Triathlon combines the three most popular physical activities in the world: swimming, biking and running. Together, the sports create an exhilarating and challenging endurance event that draws both elite and casual athletes as well as numerous spectators.
“One of the greatest aspects of living in BC is our active, West Coast lifestyle,” said Chris Catliff, President and CEO, North Shore Credit Union. “Triathlons are becoming increasingly popular and strike a chord with our clients and BC residents. The Subaru Vancouver International Triathlon enhances physical wellness; all of NSCU’s corporate sponsorships support ‘wellness’ in all its forms, not just financial.”
In addition to the multi-faceted athletic event, which includes a Half Ironman, Olympic and Sprint distances, relays, and clinics, it also includes family-oriented children’s events and entertainment. Partial proceeds benefit local charities. This type of community involvement and support were also important factors in determining NSCU’s decision to sponsor the event.
