Woman2Warrior (BC Lions Society)
The Woman2Warrior event, owned and operated by the British Columbia Lions Society for Children with Disabilities, raises funds to benefit the Society’s Easter Seals Camping Program for children with physical and/or cognitive disabilities.
Easter Seals Camps give BC children, and young adults with disabilities, the chance to discover their individual abilities. Camp sessions are carefully planned and designed to encourage these kids to gain new skills, develop new friendships, and gain confidence and independence – skills that will help them to live fulfilling lives.
On average, over 800 children and young adults with disabilities from all over BC attend a one-week camping session at one of three Easter Seals camps located across the province – Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island, Squamish near Vancouver and Winfield in the Okanagan. It is because of fundraising events, like the Woman2Warrior and the Easter Seals Camp Challenge, that the BC Lions Society is able to operate the camping program at a minimal cost to the families, many of whom are already financially burdened by the costs associated with raising children with special needs.
