Power To Play adventure race through Stanley Park creates connections to nature

Community, competition and connectivity were the keys to success of Power To Play Vancouver. On Thursday, Sept. 21, 30 teams from Vancouver’s business community competed in the charitable race presented by Goldcorp. The event raised $310,000 in support of inclusive adventures rooted in nature with Power To Be.

“The support this year was overwhelming in the best way. From an engaged volunteer team to racers who were personally connected to our mission, Power To Play was a great example of what Power To Be is all about,” Dana Hutchings, Power To Be Director of Advancement and Communications. “Community, connection, and supporting each other to explore in nature.”
