Are you passionate about sports and the impact they can have in our society? Are you ready to be challenged by taking on the future of an organization dedicated to making a difference?

Olympic Gold Medalist Chandra Crawford is looking for a seriously motivated, confident, skilled and outgoing person to lead the organization while she focuses on training for the 2010 Olympics. Fast and Female needs a “Director”. You can work from home anywhere in Canada and will be responsible for organizing events, marketing, communications, media relations and helping with fundraising.

Job Title

Company Description
You want to work at a cool startup . . .

Fast and Female is the beginning of a revolution. Since 2005, events in British Columbia, Quebec, Ontario and Alberta have expanded the organization into an exciting program with athletes of all levels involved. Success in the short-term means getting more girls hooked on cross- country skiing. In the long term, the goal is to turn Fast and Female into a nation-wide wellness-through-sport program.
