“A week at camp is life-changing. From overnight campouts, sports, games, and arts, to onsite medical support and tailored health meal programs, each camper is recognized for their abilities and gain confidence, communications skills and friendships that last a lifetime,” says Emma Liffen, director of development at Easter Seals BC/Yukon.

Registration for Get Moving is free and can be done online. Working on a team, or going it solo, participants get pledges for each kilometre they move — whether it’s running, walking, biking, swimming or any other way of being active.

All participants who raise a minimum of $300 will be entered to win one of eight prize packages, including a two night getaway to Kelowna at the Prestige Beach House and a wine tour from Wicked Wine Tours.
