/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - Media invited to the introduction of Manitoba's Chantal Givens (Denholm) and her path to the podium at the Rio Paralympics in 2016/

WINNIPEG, Jan. 29, 2015 /CNW/ - On Thursday, February 5, 2015, the Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba will be announcing a major sponsorship in support of Chantal Givens' (Denholm) pathway to Rio 2016.

With the support of Qualico, Chantal Givens will be able to finance travel to a number of international competitions preceding the 2016 Paralympic Games, as well as equipment and other related expenses. In addition, Qualico sponsored the making of a website to support Givens to raise additional funds from public donations and will match up to $5,000 on top of their stated sponsorship.

Chantal is a three-time Canadian Paratriathlon Champion and a member of the 2014 - 2015 Canadian Elite Paratriathlon Team training for the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio, Brazil.

We invite guests and media to hear Chantal's story and more about Qualico's contribution. A meet and greet with Chantal will follow a short agenda. Sporting equipment will be on display for photo opportunities.
