HIGH LEVEL MESSAGING

AN INTRO TO CHASING SUNRISE

We are a community that gets after life.

Chasing Sunrise was founded just two years ago because we no longer wanted to wait for the life we want to live, but rather to just go live it.

We didn't want to wait around for all the things we wanted out of life, so we got up and got after it – and found a bunch of rad people that wanted to do the same.

This morning is a symbol of that.

Surrounded by a whole bunch of people that aren't waiting for the day to start to get after it – and surrounded by other people who believe the same.

AN INTRO TO MEC

This is about community and coming together – regardless of race, background or story. It's about realizing we all have a hell of a lot more in common than we do in difference. It's about celebrating who we are, and about doing the things that make us who we want to be.

 

WHAT THIS MORNING IS ALL ABOUT

This morning is proof that that desire is bigger than any single one of us. It's bigger than any single country.

Right now, this is happening from coast to coast.

Thousands of Canadian's across the country, united by our beliefs, our values and our willingness to make it count.

This is about community and coming together – regardless of race, background or story. It's about realizing we all have a hell of a lot more in common than we do in difference. It's about celebrating who we are, and about doing the things that make us who we want to be.

So we are stoked that each and every one of your decided to make a choice – to make it count.
 

THE PLAN

Give them an overview of what's happening that morning.

 

OUR CODE OF CONDUCT

SAFETY

Getting every single one of us home safely is priority number – always. It is more important than anything we do.

We have built a culture that it becomes the mission of every single one of us to help make sure that the space stays safe for all and that we all make it home each time – not only when we are together, but when we venture out on our own.

  • List any key safety things specific to their city to keep in mind.
     
  • IF APPLICABLE
    • Stay on the trail
    • Hike in pairs and buddy up, don't go off on your own
    • You're going to be going slower than normal. Don't push past people. If you are slower, let faster people get past you.

LEAVE NO TRACE – IMPACT ON THE SPACE AROUND US

We have build this community on a culture of taking care of the spaces we live in – leaving them between than we found it. As we saw last year, that not only can we Leave No Trace, but can leave places better than we found, all while educating people on what matters, why it matters, and how to bring that into their adventures and experiences going forward.
 

Once again, this comes down to to all of us playing a part in it!

As a community, we ask that you do more than your share, that you respect the space around you – this means:

  • List of things they need to do.

 

GOOD VIBES ONLY

We’re here to meet rad people and make new friends, so take time to introduce yourself and get to know the people around you. Hike up with strangers, say hi to other people!
 

MAKE IT COUNT

We’re here to make these days matter, get after it and create the kind of live we want to live. So while you’re here, we ask that you drop any stories you might have and make it count. your stories and make it count!

The right group of people with the right social fabric, can have a positive impact and influence others to act the same.

     

    INDIGENOUS PEOPLE & 150+

    The plus stands to acknowledge the Indigenous Peoples who have been here long before Canada was Canada. It represents our understanding that there is a history to the land we are on, and that history predates colonization.

    The "+" is our commitment to look into the future with a hope that all communities, Nations, and peoples will walk together as a stronger society than ever before, and to bring that sentiment into our events and our community.

    Think of it as a mark of what we hope to achieve going forward – a community that not only looks towards a bright future, but does so while recognizing the past that brought us to where we are today.

     

    GET STOKED!
