I have started embarking on a lifelong dream - a human powered journey across the Trans Canada Trail, spanning 24,000 kms in memory of my sister Lindsay and inspired by my Canadian hero Terry Fox. The dream is coming to life!
As an athlete, teacher and international travel guide, my goal for this Trans Canada Trail adventure is to motivate people to believe in their dreams. In an effort to support the Cystic Fibrosis community that deeply impacted me, and will be fundraising for research along the way.
Offering mentoring and training programs focused on health and wellness will be an outcome to help others strengthen their bodies and minds for the dreams seeking a spark!
May 28, 2019 marked the start of the journey, we ran 250 km from the start of the Trans Canada Trail, Clover Point, Victoria, through valley and crossing rivers, arriving at Duke Point, Naniamo.
July 21, was a 5 day paddle across the Salish Sea, crossing 120 km further along the trail.
Touching down on mainland in Squamish on July 26. Just in time to lace up the shoes and continue north to Whistler for another 60 km.
August 25, I cycled from Stanley Park, Vancouver to Princeton, spanning 400 km through pathways, parks and peaks. Leading me to July 1, 2020, challenging the prairies head winds on two wheels through the land of the living skies. This landscape is where my life began and memories of Lindsay came rushing to meet me.
Along with stories from the trail, I will share my secrets to success and motivational tools to help you achieve your inner-most dreams!
Two feet, two wheels and a kayak have been set in motion, and I am beyond grateful for the support, connection and community that has come together to support this journey. With a willingness to give it all I've got, this dream for a person-powered, cross country expedition will help make CF stand for Cure Found!
Every step is fuelled with passion from the heart!
Today, I have covered 1,900km's along the Trans Canada Trail, with only 22,300 km remaining!
Total funds raised total $11,500and counting!!
One storybookwritten and illustrated (by yours truly ;) and tales from the trail in the blog section that allow you to join me on an armchair adventure and share what encounters and experiences await in the trails out the backdoor!
Follow along my journey. I will be updating the route, sharing photos and videos about the experiences from a trails eye view. Next leg starts May 2021, as I cycle from Princeton, B.C.
