ABOUT PADDLE TO SABLE
It is our intent to paddle, under human power alone, over 175 kilometres from Canso, Nova Scotia to Sable Island this coming August 15th, 2013. The goal of this paddle is twofold: first, to raise awareness about the need for adventure in helping to lead full and active lifestyle and second, to raise funds for kids who benefit from the programming offered by both Brigadoon Village (http://www.brigadoonvillage.org/) and Chisholm Youth Services. Our cause will directly benefit youth who have not had access to adventure and recreational opportunities, thus bringing adventure back for these youth. All funds raised during this effort will go directly to the first ever dedicated camp held at Camp Brigadoon this upcoming summer for kids from Chisholm Youth Services.
Raising awareness of the joy to be found in the natural world is one step toward changing attitudes and lifestyles for youth. Creating opportunity and space for this this type of education is our primary quest and motivation for embarking on this trip.
We will also be documenting the Paddle to Sable experience on film with the intention of producing a documentary in order to continue spreading the message after the paddle is complete!
