Welcoming Recreation for All

Wild Womxn: Dirt to Indulgence

After Party

SUNDAY, MARCH 8TH 2020 | 7PM - 10PM | BOUNDARY BAY MOUNTAIN ROOM

 

Join us in a celebration of International Women's Day on March 8th!

Help us take over the outdoors the Week of March 1-March 8. Spend the day hiking, biking, running, kayaking or whatever gets you pumped and feeling empowered.

(Activities for 2020 will be updated in January 2020.)

Then, take an evening to transform from a day of mud, dirt and sweat into your inner diva by celebrating with us in the Boundary Bay Mountain Room on Sunday, March 8th from 6 - 10pm. Ballgowns, fancy pantsuits, old prom dresses and the like are all welcome attire for this indulgent evening--whatever makes you feel beautiful!

Raffles, drinks, and dancing music will fill the evening so that you and your best gal pals can celebrate what it means to be a womxn to you.

Money raised from the evening will go towards supporting programs put on by Shifting Gears, a local non profit creating welcoming recreation experiences that encourage confidence, wellness, growth and joy.

This is a 21+ event. 

Wild Womxn of the Year Award

Wild Womxn of the Year Award

2020

DEFINE YOUR WILD!

Do you know a Wild Womxn who has overcome barriers and inspired others this past year with their outstanding spirit and drive to thrive? Whether it be biking 300 miles of the Pacific Coast Highway or completing a 4 mile hike for the first time--we would like to celebrate them!

 

Our Wild Womxn of the Year Award focuses on celebrating the accomplishments of the womxn who redefines what it means to be a womxn outside. No success is too small and no adventure is too big. Define your Own Wild and celebrate those who are inspirational to you! The award will be presented during the International Women's Day: Wild Womxn After Party at Boundary Bay.

2019 Wild Womxn

Recipient

MEET ELMA BURNHAM

Elma Burnham, the recipient of the 2019 Wild Womxn of the Year, is a fierce, loving, caring and joyful member of our Pacific NW community. As a young, 25 year old female, Elma joined the Alaska fishing world, and after just a few short years is now the setnet skipper of her crew in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Seeing a need for her fellow womxn crew members, she founded the Strength of the Tides, which is aimed at recognizing the contributions of womxn in fisheries. She also is a project manager for Bellingham SeaFeast, which supports consumer and tourist awareness of our local fishing industry and will help sustain fisheries jobs to come.  

 

2019 Wild Womxn

Recipient

MEET ELMA BURNHAM

Elma has seemingly mastered the ability to be in multiple places at once. She also has more hours in her day than the rest of us. She uses these superpowers to support the absolute crap out of her friends, family, and even some lucky strangers. Her support and love knows no bounds, and she cherishes everyone she meets. It is so easy to feel her love and support. She thinks critically and inclusively. She's hip. She's hard working. She's got great taste in music. She's Elma.
