What: Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for Wounded Warriors Canada
When: February 08-18, 2019
Why: Born and raised in Canada, I was fortunate to have freedoms that I didn’t realize were at the cost of many lives.
Three years ago, I met the love of my life who serves in the United States Navy (14 years still active) and I’ve learned just how many sacrifices the military makes (including their families).
I am now a resident of the United States, and I did a lot of volunteering for the US troops, MWR events, USO events, Charity Races, and more.
However, I learned that very little are talking about our Canadian troops back at home - unless it’s November 11.
I want to start the conversation, I need to say one last, “Thank You” before leaving Canada for good.
To the Canadian Armed Forces before me, active duty, after me, and to those who i’ll never get to meet... Thank You!
Although I realize a climb to one of the 7 Summits can in no means replace the life of a Canadian Soldier in Combat, but, It’s what I can do, with what i’m given, in this moment.
I will Climb this summit, I will hold the Flag atop at the Peak, and I hope that you can support my mission along the way. If you’ve lost anyone in the CAF, I would be honoured to have their name written on our WWC flag at the top.
To learn more about my mission, please feel free to contact myself at any time. To add a name to the flag, have a story heard, or wanting your pictures posted, give us a message and we’ll make this happen.
Let’s start this conversation.
