The countdown is on! SwimBowen is only 3 weeks away, Saturday July 16, 10am at Tunstall Bay beach. The SwimBowen team is pulling together the finishing touches and we are short a few volunteers. We would love it if you can help out! 

Please email, or call 604-947-9601, or register directly on and click on “Volunteer”. Have you already registered as a volunteer? We are ever so grateful! We will be in touch in the coming weeks to confirm arrival time and volunteer duties.  

Fundraising for the Cancer Care Fund is rocketing along. Every year we host this event, my heart bursts with the stunning generosity of our community near and far. Every one of us is affected by this devastating disease, but the Cancer Care Fund provides a kind of touch stone of hope, a boots on-the-ground kind of fund that helps dispel that pang of powerlessness knowing your donation helps to alleviate the hardship cancer treatment has on one’s life.

To date SwimBowen 2022 registrants have raised an incredible $15,760 for Bowen Islanders in cancer treatment. Thanks to our fundraising swimmers, sponsors and incredible donors - we are more than half way to our goal of $25,000.

The top fundraiser wins a 3 night Whistler getaway for 2 valued at $2,500. It includes accommodations, lift tickets, the Scandinave Spa, and a $200 gift certificate to Il Caminetto. Divine! We can’t wait to give this away on event day. 

The top fundraisers are currently: North Vancouver resident Sandy Parkinson, and Bowen swimmers, Anne Challot, Jlonka Bally-Brownand and Susan Alexander. Keen to support a swimmer and help them win this amazing prize all while supporting the Cancer Care Fund? Go to and click on Sponsor a Swimmer.
