This year, we are introducing the Leading Mom award, hosted by Vancouvermom.ca. We are looking for those everyday, behind-the-scenes moms who are making a difference on a local, national or international level and who have demonstrated exemplary leadership in one of the following categories:
- Arts, Culture and Media
- Science and Technology
- Social and Environmental Good
- Health and Wellness
- Sports and Athletics
To qualify, your leading mom must be a mother – of any age – who lives in Metro Vancouver and is able to attend the Leading Moms event on September 26, 2014. She must also have demonstrated leadership in one of the above categories and her accomplishment must be uniquely influenced by her role as a mother.
The Grand Prize
The recipient of the Leading Mom Award will receive:
Two nights accommodation for two with breakfast each morning at premier resort, Painted Boat Resort Spa Marina, located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, British Columbia. This luxurious five acre waterfront resort, just two hours from Vancouver, features 31 spacious two-bedroom villas, fitness facility, full appointed spa, infinity pool and hot tub that overlooks the ocean.
We Have A Winner!
Congratulations to Wendy Armbruster Bell!
Inspired by her own experiences as a mom (to Antonia, nine, and Michaela, seven) Wendy Armbruster Bell founded Snugabell Mom and Baby Gear with a mission “to support the beauty of breastfeeding”. The mamas she has encountered since launching Snugabell (especially those pumping for preemies and multiples) inspired her to createPump Across America, a touching video montage celebrating real moms from every state across the USA. The release of the video coincided with the launch of theSnugabell “Milk Money” grant program, which provides monthly cash grants to local breastfeeding advocacy groups. Also coming down the pipeline is a project supporting moms with babies in the NICU.
Our warmest thanks to Painted Boat Resort Spa Marina for sponsoring the Leading Mom Award.
