Woman2Warrior

Comments 35 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Woman2Warrior, an obstacle adventure race in support of BC Easter Seals Camps, is happening on May 25th at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby.

About Woman2Warrior

Woman2Warrior is a non-timed run covering about 5km of trails, track, and grass around Burnaby Central Park and Swangard Stadium. The course features obstacles to test your strength, agility, balance, and sense of adventure. You may enter as an individual or as a team, but each person must raise a minimum $300 to participate. There will be awards and prizes for the top overall fundraisers and finishers. Recruit the support of friends, family and coworkers to help you reach your fundraising goal.

By participating in Woman2Warrior you’ll be helping to send over 900 kids and young adults with disabilities throughout BC for a week long camping experience at one of three Easter Seals accessible camps. Easter Seals Camps give BC children and young adults with disabilities the chance to discover their individual abilities. Camp sessions are carefully planned and designed to encourage these kids to gain new skills, develop new friendships, gain confidence and independence – skills that will help them to live lasting and fulfilling lives. Campers are encouraged to try new things, take risks in a safe and supportive environment, but most importantly have fun!

It is because of fundraising events like the Woman2Warrior and the Easter Seals 24 Hour Relay that the BC Lions Society is able to operate the camping program at a minimal cost to the families, many of whom are already financially burdened by the costs associated with raising children with special needs.

You can register for Woman2Warrior online today by selecting your preferred start time for the event on Sunday, May 25, 2014. 10:15am through 11:00am are sold out but 10:00am, 11:15am, 11:30am, 12:00pm, 12:15pm, and 12:30pm still have a few spots open.
