On Saturday August 15th, CSW was a guest vendor at the SeaWheeze Sunset Festival Artisan Market in Stanley Park. What is arguably the worlds most fun half marathon ended with yoga, marshmallows, one-of-a-kind SeaWheeze gear, and kick ass performances by Bear Mountain, Yeasayer, and St. Lucia.
Our day started when we arrived for setup and connected with the various other vendors at the Artisan Market. Each and every vendor brought creativity, charisma and decadence to the event in one way or another. From the luxury marshmallows, to candles, beauty products, and hand crafted jewellery, festival goers left with very special (and delicious) goodies.
We had an amazing time connecting with thousands of visitors who both ran the SeaWheeze half marathon, supported their familiy and friends by cheering or simply came out for the hottest after-party of the year. Whatever your involvement, we are grateful for each and everyone of you who stopped by and showed your support. Your shiny smiles, good vibes and contagious positive energy made this night one to remember. Your generosity and overwhelming kindness helped us raise over $1200 dollars. These funds are going towards developing education programs to launch at home and abroad.
We would also like to extend a very special thank you to our friend and photographer Jordan Leroy, who kindly volunteered to capture some picturesque moments from the night. Take a look at his stunning photos below. Jordan's the dude with the tattoo of our tree on his arm.
...and yeah, that's right, we had facepaint! Let's just say Megan's got a talent for fabulous face art!
