Aspac Developments Ltd. has announced its Elite Level Sponsorship of the Richmond Olympic Experience (the ‘ROX’) at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Aspac continues to show its ongoing support for sport and athletic competition in Richmond, B.C.
As part of an eventful day, Aspac invited members of the Boys and Girls Club, ‘Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives’ Charity, and local dignitaries to enjoy an exclusive visit to the ROX. This exhibit is the first North American member of the International Olympic Committee’s Olympic Museums Network.
Those attendees and community leaders who came to out to show their support at the event included Mayor Malcolm Brodie, Councillors Linda MacPhail, Carol Day, and Ken Johnston, as well as many others.
On behalf of Aspac, Ms. Karen Tung spoke at the media conference about its dedication to the pursuit of excellence within the local sporting community. “Our goal at Aspac is simple. If we can inspire even one child to take up a sport, to make a difference in his or her life, or to possibly, one day ‘own the podium’, we will feel like we have really accomplished something.”
Ms. Tung then welcomed Avery Quinn on stage – a 15-year-old athlete who was inspired six years ago by the Speed Skating Community Tour throughout Richmond in the lead up to the 2010 Winter Olympics. This Tour was made possible by the generous sponsorship of Aspac Developments Ltd.
“At Aspac Developments, we have long supported the Olympic movement and will continue to do so. We pride ourselves on being involved and giving back to the community. In celebration of the pursuit of dreams and excellence, Aspac is sponsoring the exhibit of Olympic Torches and Medals.” added Aspac Developments.
Guests to the ROX, which opened to the public on November 28, 2015, can interact with five world-class sports simulators or compete in multiple interactive challenges. They can also ‘touch history’ on digital screens, explore the Games in the Olympic Data Lounge, and marvel at over 500 priceless artifacts. Apac’s Elite Sponsorship continues to help make the ROX the vital museum that it is today.
