Overview of the Elevator Race
It is important to highlight that 100% of the net proceeds of this Series are donated to a not for profit society that supports local youth – The Youth Outdoor Recreation Society. (Y.O.R.S) provides affordable programs for mainstream and at-risk youth in the Okanagan to participate in outdoor recreation, education and leadership activities. Community Support is very important to our company, we believe strongly that giving back to the community creates more opportunity and success for everyone, and where better to start then by exposing our kids to all the things we cherish about this valley. There is no better classroom than the great outdoors.
