Golfers support power of recreation

The annual Power To Golf Charity Classic at Victoria Golf Club raises $261,000 for Power To Be

Business leaders and athletes came together at Victoria Golf Club Thursday (Aug. 27) for the ninth annual Power To Golf Charity Classic, raising a record-breaking $261,000 in support of the local recreation program Power To Be.

“Our amazing community of supporters makes it possible for Power To Be to offer inclusive, accessible recreation to youth and families in Victoria and Vancouver,” says Tim Cormode, Power To Be executive director.

“We truly believe that everyone belongs in nature, and that given the opportunity to challenge themselves in that environment they will be able to develop confidence in all areas of their lives.”

To date, Power To Golf has raised more than $1 million in support of Power To Be.

Power To Be inspires youth and families in need of support through nature-based programs.

Adaptive Recreation is a response to the community need for inclusive, nature-based recreation for people living with a barrier or disability, and Wilderness School is a multi-year program for youth that fosters positive social development and life skills though outdoor adventure activities.

Since 1998, Power To Be has reached more than 8,000 participants. Learn more at
