The People of Power To Be

Monthly Donor Spotlight: Christie

From participant parent to event volunteer, to Power To Summit racer and monthly donor, Christie knows what Power To Be is all about! Christie first joined the Power To Be community four years ago when her youngest son became involved in the Wilderness School program.

Paddleboard Donation with Helicopters Without Borders

Last month we partnered with Helicopters Without Borders (HWB), a grassroots charity in Vancouver, to donate paddleboards to Kitasoo First Nation. The paddleboards will be used this summer, amongst the whole community, so that everyone in the Kitasoo Nation has an opportunity to explore nature.

Exploring with the Adventure Squad

Over the last 3-4 years Power To Be has had the opportunity to do multi/ progressive day programs with a class from North Saanich Middle School. For most of them simply being outside for the whole day is quite the adventure. It’s an opportunity for them to explore, be challenged, and grow. Adventure squad is all about exploring the natural environment.

Going with the flow with adaptive kayaking equipment

Power To Be is always exploring ways to improve and expand the programs we offer. Thanks to meaningful conversations and a generous grant from the BC Rehab Foundation, we were able to build relationships and partnerships with organizations both old and new which in turn has helped us cater to the needs of our participants.

Go Explore: Tod Inlet

In the north end of Gowlland Tod Provincial Park next to Butchart Gardens, lies the beautiful Tod Inlet. I have hiked down through the mossy forest above Tod Creek to the beautiful inlet in several different seasons. There is always something beautiful to see!

Going BIG with Power To Summit 2022

In the spirit of going BIG, we are combining our 2 signature events (Power To Summit Vancouver and Power To Summit Victoria) into 1 BIG event! From May 27th – 29th we are inviting racers from Victoria, Vancouver, and anywhere in the world to join in on the adventure and show your support for Power To Be!

Working as One for One Planet

Power To Be joined One Planet Saanich a few years ago as a way to connect to our local neighbours and municipality members and to contribute to being a part of something together. Power To Be strives for authentic action, and the One Planet Action Plan framework provides ambitious sustainability objectives and goals throughout our organization.
