The Great Hike

Thank you for your time. I've walked for seven years over 19,500kms or 31,200,0000 steps on the Trans Canada Trail as a contribution to our country and a promise to my dad who can't walk. I've overcome all odds, injury, heartache, loneliness, countless hardships and more. I've always given back volunteering at schools one class at a time speaking to millions of children inspiring them to believe in themselves and to live a healthy strong lifestyle.

I need help. The only way I can make it to the Arictic Ocean is with a support vehicle on the Dempster Highway. It's one of the most extreme environments on the planet and without support I could easily die. There is no rescue out there in a week long blizzard. I already have a volenteer driver all I need is the financing.

Why not quit and begin again next spring? Because the only way to get from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk on the Arictic Ocean is in winter. If not now my dream after 7 years fades away as I still have to finish the rest of the Trans Canada Trail over the next 2 years. The Great Hike has always been about sharing stories and pics about this great nation. How amazing would it be if I could have the book and film released by 2017, Canada's 150th birthday. I've come far too long to quit now.

I need help to raise the $4000.00 to rent the truck and camper with gas and food so I may continue to tell the Canadian tale for all to share. As a show of good faith please go to Fraserway RV Rentals and like their Facebook Page. I ask you too leave a comment on how you feel my journey has been important and how their help is appreciated.

I need to raise these funds by Friday November 21st so I can be on the road the following Monday to give me time to be home for Christmas. Thank you so very much any questions or concerns call me at [phone redacted] or email me at [email redacted] have a glorious day indeed...
