Good People Can Do Amazing Things

Today's blogpost is about how 'Good People Can Do Amazing Things' with the support of family, friends and an entire SUP community standing with them (pardon the pun).

I am talking about Trevor Petersen. Your first introduction to Trevor may have been here on my blog (check it out to learn more about Trevor). I had the privilege of connecting with Trevor in the Fall of 2013 at the Kal Classic in Vernon, BC and he was talking about spreading awareness about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Jump forward to today and Trevor has almost completed the 2015 Ontario leg of his Paddling With PTSD Expedition, paddling from Toronto to Ottawa to raise awareness about PTSD in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association

Trevor is also an Ambassador for numerous SUP/Paddlesports brands including: Werner Paddles and CJC SUP Fins.

Trevor is expected to arrive in our nation's capitol on July 6th (WOO HOO, Trevor). If you are an experienced SUP paddler, kayaker or canoeist and you are interested in joining Trevor, for the last leg of his journey meet up at 10 am on July 6th at Dow's Lake (1001 Queen Elizabeth Drive) in Ottawa.

Below are a couple of photos of Trevor on his journey.

Safe journey Trev! We are cheering you on from BC!

All about having a compass this particular day.
