What We Are Passionate About
Whether its the environment, or the community we live within the Whiskey Jacks know how important it is to give back. The English Bay Water Polo Club held a long history of joining causes and hosting fundraisers. Below are just some of the charities, and actionable causes that our club actively supports and participates in.
In Our Community and In Ourselves
The English Bay Whiskey Jacks started in 1988 but hit big during the 1990 Celebration Gay Games III Vancouver and ever since we've not been shy about being inclusive and supportive of sexuality. Our group has fought hard against stereotypes brought against the LGBTQ+ community in sports and done so at the height of the AIDS crisis in North America. Since the beginning we have participated and marched in the Vancouver Pride Parade Celebrations to show our support for inclusivity and equality in all things.
Empowering Through Solidarity
Every year the Positive Living Society raises funds to support and empower the low income members in our community whom live with HIV. Members of the community are invited annually to raise funds and represent this cause every September to walk a mile in someone else's shoes participating in the annual Aids Walk for Life. This action memorializes those lost too soon and symbolizes the commitment to keep moving forward fighting in their name.
