Woman can help raise money for the B.C. Lions Society by taking part in an obstacle course and five km run this weekend.

Calling all women warriors

Fundraising 5km run and obstacle course looking for participants

The Easter Seals and B.C. Lions society is calling all women warriors.

The inaugural Woman 2 Warrior fundraising 5km run and obstacle course kicks off Aug. 30 testing balance, agility and endurance while raising funds to send children with cognitive and physical disabilities to camp.

Sending one child to Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan, a specialized camp with trained co-ordinators, registered nurses and support for disabled children costs approximately $2,400 per child, per week.

All money raised at the West Shore event stays on Vancouver Island.

Registration happens online or just before the start of the race at 9 a.m. at West Shore Parks and Recreation near the start line between the Q Centre and the tennis courts.

The types of obstacles on the course for the expected 200 participants will be a surprise and participants must fundraise a minimum of $300 to participate.
