Oakley 2013 Ambassador Contest – And the Winners Are…

If you recall, Oakley Canada recently hosted a contest to find their next Oakley Ambassadors for 2013.  Women from across Canada submitted videos and written stories on why their positive and active outlook on life, would be a great fit with the Oakley Canada brand.

A total of 12 Oakley Ambassdors were chosen, four of which are from British Columbia!  Read on to find out more about the 2013 Oakley Ambassadors from British Columbia:

  • Lauren Pilszek – As a kinesiologist with a passion for fitness, Lauren believes in motivating and encouraging others to do their best.  She has worked with a diverse range of fitness levels including children, special Olympic athletes, injured workers, varsity athletes, policemen and firefighters.
  • Cassie Hawrysh – Cassie aspires to help people, young and old, to realize that their limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.  She is excited to inspire others to realize that anyone really can achieve anything!
  • Magee Walker – Living in the Whistler community, Magee is excited to show (not just tell) people about the innovations, events and products that will improve the way they perform the activities that they love.
  • Kristine Wiess – Living with an “activity first” mantra, Kristine’s list of active activities include strength training sessions, mountain bike rides, snowshoe trips or snowboarding.

From watching and reading the motivating stories of these strong-willed Canadian women, these ambassadors definitely have an impact on their networks and communities. Through the Oakley Ambassador program, I hope their enthusiasm continues to shine as they continue to inspire others throughout the rest of the year and beyond.

Congratulations to all the new 2013 Oakley Ambassadors!
