2014 race raises $218,000 to support programs
The teams, including one from Power To Be, raced throughout the park to complete 16 challenges that tested mental and physical mettle. It all culminated at the finale, where teams were challenged to work their way through five final activities with support from Olympian Simon Whitfield and triathlete Kelly Guest. From problem solving to taking a shot on net past Whitecaps great Carl Valentine, the competition was fierce and muddy as teams crawled through pools of mud to get to the finish line.
Special mentions go to the top fundraising team, Cassels Brock Lawyers (pictured below) who received the Act-of-Kindness award for raising an incredible $16,775 to support Power To Be. Tempest Capital, the fastest race winners, finished at 1:58:38. (See full event results).
Power To Be was honoured to welcome program committee member and participant Adam Bishop to the after-party to share the story of how nature has shaped his life.
Power To Play Vancouver marks the third year in a partnership between Power To Be and the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation in an effort to support access to park and recreation services for people living with life-barriers.
