HeroWork Party Details 

Date & Time: Sept. 24, 10 a.m. to  2 p.m. See full itinerary below.

Location: Colwood Creek Park.

80's costumes and silliness welcomed!

There will be several mini activities that you can participate in to earn points! There will be a hockey game, a dance battle, karaoke, best costumes and more.

Every time you complete an activity, you will earn points toward a range of gift certificates and unique prizes. If there are any ties, a dance battle will ensue!

Activities 

By participating in the activities, you can win some of our coveted prizes – such as a night's stay at Cox Bay Beach Resort in Tofino (going rate $400-800/night).

  • Grizzlies Hockey Game – Team up against fellow competitors, the team that wins collects more points!
  • Karaoke Bar – You don't need to be the best singer to win at this one, just bring your spirit and your recollection of some classic lyrics and whoever brings it the most will score the most points, of course!
  • Dance-off – Much like the karaoke, you don't need to be the best dancer to win at this one. We want individuals or teams competing, whoever is sweating and laughing the most will earn the most points!
  • Sack Race – Remember sack races when you were in elementary school? Well we're bringing that back to the table. Bring your childlike spirit as individuals and/or teams compete against each other to win points.
  • Choose your distance or length and walk around as many times as possible. For every loop, you earn more points. This is our most flexible option – we just want to see you out there!
