The finish line event will feature a talk by Nav “Superfan” Bhatia about his personal journey with philanthropy and basketball.

Media are invited to attend the finish line event.

As a visible minority and immigrant from India, Bhatia faced struggles and discrimination throughout the years. An entrepreneur and passionate philanthropist with a vision to unite people through basketball, he created the non-profit Nav Bhatia Superfan Foundation – which raises money to build basketball courts and camps for kids in Canada and around the world. The foundation also supports Canada Basketball and the World Vision Rise-Up Daughters of India initiative, which helps to build washrooms for girls in northern India.
