About the event!
Modeled after the television show "Survivor", Exile Island is annual event that challenges local businesses to gather their tribes and take part in an action packed afternoon, all in a united effort to grant heartfelt wishes. Exile Island BC takes place November 4, 2016 at the Richmond Oval in Richmond, BC.
We have been teamed with 16 year old Ethan, who at just 4 weeks old was diangnosed with Biliary Atresia, a liver disease which lead him to having a liver transplant. He has also been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and ADHD.
Ethan's wish is to go with his family to Disney World, where he is looking forward to building his own lightsaber, riding the rides, and enjoying all the foods and treats taht Disney has to offer!
Our goal is $10,000
At the event, teams compete in a series of mental, physical, creative and strategic challenges, battling head-to-head to win the title of "BC’s Ultimate Survivors!"
