We are thrilled to announce that Prospera Credit Union has signed on as the title sponsor of the Okanagan-based Granfondo Axel Merckx—one of the largest and fastest growing mass participation cycling events in North America. The three-year commitment made by Prospera as title sponsor ensures that cycling and tourism in the Okanagan region will remain as strong as ever.
The Prospera Granfondo Axel Merckx Okanagan (PGAMO) will of course occur on Sunday, July 13th, 2014 in Penticton, B.C. Registration is still open in the Cortofondo (55 km), Mediofondo (92 km) and Granfondo (160 km) categories.
“Prospera has a strong history of supporting community-based organizations and events, and we’re extremely excited and thankful for their support in helping host one of North America’s top mass cycling events,” says event founder, Axel Merckx. “Their three-year commitment not only signals the strength of our Granfondo in BC, but also shows their great faith and passion for events that bring people together.”
