I didn’t grow up as an outdoorsman but quickly converted in my 20’s around a young family with activities and adventures. Since then I have become all in -- wilderness camping and canoeing, cycling, walking and trekking, and a little bit of skiing and golf thrown in for good balance.
With “awareness” only of Outward Bound, I found the opportunity to join the Board this year and have become very involved and a passionate believer in the charity and the tremendous work they do for Canadians of all backgrounds. I want to get out, look in and give back. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is a huge stretch for me but an exciting one to climb with my son Sebastian, to be with a tremendous team of people from all over the world and to raise money and awareness for Outward Bound.
It’s not just about giving money but experiencing what OBC is all about and the tremendous work they are doing especially youth at risk. We spend too much time indoors and at the desk, and we need to push ourselves, disconnect from technology, and simply be in the moment with nature.
