Sponsorships & Donations

What a paradox it is...when you have time but no money, money but no time. For the four of us, this trip to the Arctic represents much more than just a regular old camping trip. We will paddle for arctic awareness, for solitude and grace, for perspective and introspection. We are teachers at heart, determined to change the world one paddle stroke at a time.

If you would like to help make this journey a reality, please take a look at our wish list and consider a small donation.

Located in the northwestern corner of the Northwest Territories, the Anderson traverses taiga and tundra, and ultimately drains into the Arctic Ocean. The remote and vast setting of the Anderson River offers serenity and abundant wildlife, but also considerable challenge and risk to the wilderness traveler. Our team has a diverse background of backcountry experience with over 1,000 combined days on trail and individual Wilderness First Responder certifications.

Our technical skill and enthusiasm will take us only so far. We seek sponsorship in order to better equip our expedition and help us achieve our trip goals. A main objective of our trip is to raise public awareness about the Arctic. By writing articles for local newspapers and outdoor magazines as well as addressing the public through workshops at stores and local schools, our expedition will encourage people to value remote wilderness areas.
