Great Valley Rally

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce is launching an event this summer dubbed the Great Valley Rally.

One of the many Chamber functions is to promote the business, social and civic welfare of various communities in the Valley.

The July 26 rally will offer a way to unite the three local communities in support of a positive, Valley-wide community building initiative.

The event will be modelled after the Amazing Race with teams facing maps, challenges, check points and business stops as they wind their way through the Valley in teams, self-propelled or in vehicles.

The rally will end with an afternoon party in Cumberland.  The event will be held on an annual basis. Each year, a different project in a different area of the Valley will be selected as the recipient of the marketing focus and a percentage of funds from team registration. This year, the highlighted project will be the Cumberland Forest ( which has a direct link to the economy in Cumberland.

Registration to come soon.
