Celebrating survivorship

Brought together by a common thread, their journey had begun many years ago. They are survivors and Power to Be was lucky enough to organize a trip for eight amazing youth through the Teen Adventures – A Spirit Quest program supported by Balding for Dollars and the Oncology/Hematology/BMT Program at BC Children’s Hospital.

First volunteer overnight training a success

Victoria-based volunteers came together for Power To Be’s first volunteer overnight training. Volunteer trainings are a common practice at Power To Be, although training with an overnight component was something new this year.

Power To Play Victoria raises $182,500

Through mud, water and 10 kilometres of trails, 33 teams from Victoria’s business community took over Elk/Beaver Lake Park May 24 for Power To Play. This year’s adventure race raised a record $182,500 in support of Power To Be’s programs.

Nature and history mingle on weekend trek

Just north of the world famous West Coast Trail lays the relatively unknown Cape Beale Trail. Historically it was part of the same telegraph line and lifesaving trail that set the foundation for the West Coast Trail. The Cape Beale Trail, however, although much shorter in distance, provides its own challenges with infrequent maintenance and deep mud.  

Vancouver supporters suit up for surf

Every once in a while we get an opportunity to show a small token of our appreciation to our generous supporters. Thanks to the great team at Long Beach Lodge Resort, we hosted a weekend getaway in Tofino for last year’s top fundraising teams from Power To Play Vancouver, a corporate adventure race in support of Power To Be.
