Our fundraiser finished up on October 31, 2018.
We raised a total of $10,840 with the help of each of you and our corporate sponsor, Energy Ecosystem Services. 90% of the proceeds will go to Trails Youth Initiatives and 10% to the Bruce Trail Conservancy.
We are planning a trip back to Trails to share our adventure with the same cohort of kids that inspired us to follow through on our ambitious goal in the first place.
Many people have asked us what is next for us. Well, the truthful answer is: we’re not sure! We’re taking a break from the trail to plan our wedding. But I’m sure we’ll get the itch again soon and a longer, rockier trail will call to us.
We would like to give a final thank you to each and every person that followed us, we could feel the support with every step we took.
We learned a great deal over the past 10 months. From planning each excruciating detail to walking each excruciating step, we learned how much can be accomplished with a little bit of effort and the support of some pretty great people.
If you have any questions about undertaking a big hike or fundraising campaign please feel free to reach out. Also you can read about our adventure on the CBC here.
