Jay's Great Divide Trail Thru-Hike

Hello everyone!

This upcoming summer I wish to accomplish the Great Divide Trail, a 1100km hiking trail which goes through Alberta and British Columbia. I will be starting my hike at the end of June 2021 (the exact date will be kept private for security reasons), at the Waterton trailhead, where I'll be Northbound for the next weeks.

This fundraiser will help me reach this goal by helping me pay for important gear which I'm still missing: a tent, an inReach, a sleeping bag liner, a down coat. It will also help me pay for required permits and the food, which should come out to a combined 1200$ in  and of itself.

As soon as I have purchased all required equipment, the money which is donated here will be kept for a special donation at the end of my hike: all extra funds will be donated to the Great Divide Trail Association, which is a non-profit organisation that helps maintain the trails and preserve the natural landscape surrounding them. If hikers are able to complete this massive undertaking, it is in great parts thanks to the wonderful work this organisation does, and it is only by supporting them that future hikers - such as myself - will get to one day attempt this endeavor.

Thank you, to all who help me in any way - whether that is through donations, sharing of this page, or simply words of encouragement. While I'm dedicated to accomplishing the Great Divide Trail, I know that it is thanks to the continued support of those around me that I have even gotten this far into the project.

So thank you for being here and helping me achieve this wonderful goal!
