Power To Be is excited to announce we have partnered with Field Hockey Canada, the national sports organization responsible for the development and growth of field hockey in Canada. According to Power To Be COO, Dana Hutchings, the partnership strengthens both parties values.
“We are honoured to be partnering with the Canadian Women’s National Field Hockey team. Their passion to be involved in the community promoting a healthy, active lifestyle in the outdoors aligns very well with what we do here at Power To Be. It is our mission to bring access and inclusion to nature-based activities, and with the support of the team, we are grateful to see this continue to move in the right direction. We are so looking forward to having the team participate in our fundraising events, and raise awareness for our programs, as well as have the athletes share their stories and connection to nature with our participants. Their leadership and dedication will surely be an inspiration to those breaking through their own barriers.”
Field Hockey Canada’s Women’s National Team and Power To Be are forming a community partnership, whereby the WNT will support and participate in Power To Be initiatives and the two organizations will collaborate on joint projects. One being, Power To Be’s upcoming virtual fundraising event, Power To Summit. The WNT has entered two teams into the race which takes place from May 14 – 16, 2021. The teams have three days to “climb” 6190 metres (equivalent to the tallest peak in North America – Mt. Denali) to complete the goal.
Women’s National Team members Maddie Secco and Alison Lee are captaining the two virtual race teams. According to Secco, the connection with Power To Be is fuelled by the mutual interest in the outdoors and living a healthy lifestyle.
“As national team athletes, we are passionate about healthy living. We are truly honoured to be partnering with an organization that aligns so well with our values,” Secco said, adding that the team is looking forward to the Power To Summit initiative next week. “We will be posting pictures in costumes and making updates as we climb, so stay tuned for some great content!”
