Samples of work:

Client:  Coast to Coast Against Cancer

Project:  Planned, organized, marketed, and implemented the first-ever Tour for Kids Atlantic, a three-day cycling event around The Cabot Trail for over 100 cyclists.  Kickstand ensured that participants experienced not just world class cycling, but also a whiskey tasting, on-site square dancing with live music, a whale watching tour and a grand finale flash mob!

Testimonial: “What an unbelievable event.  Easily the best and most organized I have ever been to… by far!  The attention to detail, camaraderie, and extra bells and whistles were phenomenal and made for the best weekend of my summer.  Kickstand did a phenomenal job.”

– Dan MacDougall, Tour for Kids Atlantic Participant

 

Client: The NS HeartLand Tour

Project: Planned, organized, marketed, and implemented a seven-day, seven-city, “HeartLand Tour” for over 2,000 participants across Nova Scotia.  Kickstand ensured that each city on the tour had a range of activities and events for all ages and abilities, including yoga classes, cycling routes, 5-10k run/walks, speakers on health topics, and much more!

Testimonial: “After five years in existence the HeartLand Tour had experienced a substantial amount of growth in its events and as an organization. By early 2012 it had become clear to our volunteer board that we needed someone to take on a paid role, however our budget did not allow for a full time staff member. We needed someone who could work varied hours and offer a diverse skill set, on a contract basis. Kickstand has been the perfect resource. Event planning and marketing expertise have added great value to the HeartLand Tour and we now have the capacity to develop new programs, recruit new volunteers and grow our community events!”
– Dr. Nicholas Giacomantonio, HeartLand Tour President
