Race for a Cause

Outward Bound Challenge

Reach your personal goal AND make a difference!

Reaching the finish line of Wilderness Traverse is an unforgettable personal accomplishment. Why not make it even more meaningful by helping provide a life-changing wilderness experience for a vulnerable youth, a woman who’s experienced abuse or a veteran suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Over the years, teams have raised over $50,000 in pledges for Outward Bound Canada – a national charity that provides inspiring and challenging journeys of self-discovery in the natural world for some of society’s most vulnerable members.

Please consider supporting the teams who are raising funds for Outward Bound Canada this year:

This experience has changed my life. Never will anything be as amazing (or awful) as my experiences on Outward Bound. My eyes have been opened as I was exposed to a plethora of brand new and amazing things. I can never fully express how deeply and truly thankful I am for this wonderful time.

There is more to us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less.
