Women of Vancouver: are YOU a warrior?

“There is a warrior in the heart of every woman. She is strong. Determined. Powerful.”

What’s Woman2Warrior?

Fresh + Fit is pleased to announce the 3rd annual Woman2Warrior event–a 5 km run that encourages women from our gorgeous province to bring their A-game, and rock a great workout. On Sunday, May 24th, participants will hit trails, grass, and track along Burnaby’s Central Park and Swangard Stadium. With twelve obstacles “designed to test strength, agility, balance and endurance,” the entire experience is nothing short of an I-am-woman-hear-me-roar-adventure!

Presented by Subway and hosted by The British Columbia Lions Society for Children with Disabilities, this obstacle adventure race is exclusive to women, and helps raise funds for the purpose of sending over 800 children and adolescents with disabilities to an accessible Easter Seals camp in British Columbia.

 “Our goal with Woman2Warrior is to raise funds while immersing our amazing competitors in a fun, supportive environment. It’s about the experience, not the competition. It’s about pushing boundaries, trying something new, and getting out of your comfort zone – much like our Easter Seals campers.” –Amy Kleckner, events manager for the BC Lions Society
