What is Power To Play Vancouver?
Staged in Stanley Park for Thursday, September 25, Power To Play Vancouver – presented by Goldcorp – is an outdoor adventure race that takes team-building with Vancouver’s corporate elite to the next level. Designed as a fundraising event, Power To Play Vancouver proceeds directly support local charity Power To Be Adventure Therapy Society (Power To Be), which provides accessible and inclusive outdoor recreation programs for youth and families living with a disability or significant life barrier. Power To Be has reached more than 8000 participants since inception in 1998.
On race day, 40 four-person Vancouver corporate teams will show up for a noon start at Brockton Oval Clubhouse in Stanley Park after months of creating awareness and fundraising for Power To Be. Teams will require physical and mental stamina to complete the four-hour adventure race spanning more than 10km throughout Stanley Park.
The challenges are designed to incorporate trust, leadership, communication and above all, teamwork. Racers will need to consider all variables as challenges rely heavily on natural landscape and elements, including several water-based challenges. At any given point, teams will be running, crawling, climbing, swimming and even paddling their way to the finish line.
Prizing spans three categories, ‘Fastest Team’ (free team entry in 2015), the ‘Act-of-Kindness’ award for the highest fundraising team (media profile in Globe & Mail), and ‘Best-Dressed’ (teams are encouraged to show up in style). Additionally, fundraising incentives are factored into the race. Teams that raise more than $3000 get five minutes taken off final race times, and teams that raise more than $4000 have the option to skip a challenge.
Through the dedication of the corporate community, sponsors and volunteers, Power To Play Vancouver 2014 aims to raise $150,000 to help Power To Be reach more than 800 youth and families in need of support this year.
