Sponsorship form with levels of support detailed is available for download here. Here’s a list of all our great sponsors who have stepped up so far to support Run Stanley!
Meet Cathy! Run Stanley fans will notice we’ve added a female runner to this year’s t-shirt design. Her name is Cathy in honor of Miss Catherine O’Brien, assistant to Frank Stanley Beveridge, who was instrumental to the founding of Stanley Park and willed her house, which stood at the location of Gate 2, to the park. In keeping with Miss Obrien’s wishes, her mother Margaret is remembered at Stanley Park with Margaret Lane at the former location of their home. Park visitors can see an image of Catherine O’Brien on the bronze doors of the Carillon Bell Tower. An impressive fact about Catherine O’Brien: she was the President of a Fortune 500 company in the 1930’s. In her honor, we are naming our cartoon woman runner Cathy, and we appreciate her coaching Stanley on to run his second 5k on October 19, 2014!
