On Saturday, April 11, Spark Creations Inc. in partnership with Dress for Success Vancouver, hosted the SPARK it FORWARD Race, an amazing style race around downtown Vancouver where racers were tasked to share random acts of kindness.
Over 80 racers participated, ranging from corporate teams like Elastic Path and iQmetrix to clients of the Dress for Success programs. Over 2,000 random acts of kindness were completed by the racers raising over $16,0000 with 100 per cent of the proceeds benefiting the Dress for Success programs. In hopes of reaching their goal of $20,000, fundraising is still open until the goal is reached.
