As participants cross the finish line of the inaugural Prospera Valley GranFondo on July 22, 2012 in Fort Langley BC, they will each receive a very significant memento to celebrate their accomplishment. The unique Finishers Medal will feature artwork created by a Kwantlen First Nation artist specifically for this event. The design was selected through a contest presented by the Prospera Valley GranFondo and the people of the Kwantlen First Nation. The goal was to combine First Nations artwork with the theme of cycling.
The winning design was created by artist Phyllis Atkins who received a $1,000 award from Canadian Velo Event Management Society, presenters of the Prospera Valley GranFondo.
