Trans CanEAUda

A very good friend of mine, Karine, has embarked on a journey that most outdoor enthusiasts would consider unfathomable. On April 30, 2011 at approximately 3:00PM EST, Karine and 5 of her close friends began a 7000 km canoe expedition that will take them from Ottawa North West to Inuvik in (hopefully) just under 6 months. WHY? You make ask… each one of the adventurers has their own personal reason for participating in such an epic feat of willpower and physical endurance, but as far as I can tell, it’s all about passion for activism and raising awareness about the importance of artic watershed conservation.

The group is encouraging donations and memberships to two non-for-profit organizations, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society and Ottawa Riverkeeper, which work towards cleaner and healthier watersheds.
