Adaptive Trek - West Kootenays

On July 02, 2019 Ethan and Tanelle are embarking on a journey. For them it will be a journey filled with obstacles most of us cannot even begin to imagine. In a split-second the lives of these two young people were forever changed, both Ethan and Tanelle suffered traumatic Spinal Cord Injuries while in pursuit of outdoor adventure. Although their lives have been altered, Ethan and Tanelle want to prove that life can still be active, rich and rewarding.

Mike Riediger, Executive Director of Kootenay Adaptive Sport Association says,
 “My friends, Ethan Krueger and Tanelle Bolt, both have spinal cord injuries and together we are looking to make an inspirational and realistic video showing adventure sport in the area. The trip will take us from Revelstoke to Nelson by way of water and accessible trails. In between, we will be riding the adaptive mountain biking trails in the region as well as attending our second annual SCI – Spinal Cord Injury KASA retreat which will take place in New Denver this year. Right now we are in the “looking for funding phase” and any help would be an amazing asset to this project as we would love to share this video on the mountain film fest circuit as well as rehabilitation and recovery centres, where it can help uplift those new in their injuries.”


Funds raised from this Go Fund Me campaign will go towards Videography, Trek expenses and Distribution. Any left over funds will go to support adaptive sport in the region. Being able to share this with others will be the most impactful part of our adventure and your support not only helps us on our journey, but will also help uplift others in the process for years to come and we are grateful for your support.
