Hiking 1200km for Crossing the Divide

Crossing the Divide gives disadvantaged youth the opportunity to access the outdoors because getting out in nature fuels our mental, physical, social and emotional health. Collectively we can support Crossing the Divide in their mission to provide disadvantaged youth opportunities for personal growth through outdoor education.

Having the opportunity to be outside in nature has completely shaped my life. I'm so grateful to live in the Canadian Rockies and to be able to so easily access the mountains and the joy of recreating outside. For many youth though, getting outside, being in nature and being physically active is a challenge. Since 2019 I've been on the Board of Crossing the Divide, which provides disadvantaged youth opportunities for personal growth through outdoor education.

In July 2021 I'll set off on a great adventure, to hike The Great Divide Trail (GDT) in only 21 days, something no one has ever done before. I'll be wandering through the vast wilderness of the Canadian Rocky Mountains for more than 1100 kilometers. Adding to the challenge, the GDT is not officially designated and not always even an actual trail, sometimes merely a wilderness route.

This is entirely too many kilometres. But a worthy cause. If you need a crew day I’ll join in. One day only!

I'll bring you snacks at some junctions. Can't guarantee I won't need to eat them in order to get to said junctions.
