Shawnigan Adventure offers new 2014 options

Vancouver Islanders love to rally for a great cause and love to have fun in the great outdoors. Next month you can do both at the same time by taking part in the 10th annual Shawnigan Lake Adventure on Sunday, June 1, at the Shawnigan Lake Community Centre.

Originally known as the Shawnigan Lake Walk, the Shawnigan Lake Adventure has grown over the past decade to include more activities and options for people of all ages and abilities. Unchanged, however, is the event’s goal of raising money for – and awareness of – the Cowichan Family Caregivers Support Society.

This year’s Adventure features several new cycling and walking routes, as well as a kayaking excursion on Shawnigan Lake and the free use of GPS units for family-friendly geocaching games. Participants will also be treated to soothing foot baths and massages, free live entertainment, delicious vegetarian food, and a 10th anniversary birthday cake at the post-Adventure artisan’s market.
