On the eve of the one year anniversary marking the opening of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the Richmond Olympic Oval Community Legacy Program announced a new partnership with Aspac Developments Ltd., ensuring a wide variety of sport and fitness activities are available to community members of all ages and skill sets.
On hand at the press conference were Malcolm Brodie, Mayor of Richmond; John Mills, General Manager of the Richmond Olympic Oval; Raymond Li, Director and Senior Vice President of Aspac Developments; Denny Morrison, Olympic medalist; Kristina Groves; Olympic medalist.
After the announcement, 35 children and youth from Richmond, Vancouver, and Burnaby speed skating clubs stepped onto the ice with their Olympic heroes, Denny Morrison and Kristina Groves, who were on hand to help celebrate the news.
Two days later, the two speed skating medalists from the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games dedicated their time to raise money for their charity of choice — KidSport Canada — with an autograph signing at the River Green Story Centre.
Throughout the weekend, River Green, as one of the Silver Sponsors of this year’s Winterfest, hosted a booth at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Families gathered around the booth to collect Speed Skating Canada’s pins while an airbrush tattoo artist sprayed different Canadian themed tattoos on various youthful visitors. River Green also opened its door to accept donations to KidSport.
