The Adventure Challenges are breathtakingly beautiful rambles over sea, lake, mountain trails (and some long pavement) raising money for Canuck Place Children's Hospice, Canucks for Kids Fund and 60 Minute Kids Club.
Locations: Jericho Beach, Vancouver BC, BC and Cultus Lake in Chilliwack, BC. One race will include a 4km Ocean Kayak / 20km Mountain Bike / 5km Trail Run and the other a 4k Lake Kayak, 30k road bike, and an 8km ramble in a beautiful rain forest. I do BOTH of them.

The Eve before Canuck Place Cultus Lake Adventure Challenge and Eve of the Eve before Canuck Place Vancouver Adventure Challenge
I believe (although my beliefs are fleeting) I am ready, or at least I believe I am no longer facing the the symptoms of Strep Throat anymore! A week of antibiotics and zero exercise and zero appetite has kind of turned a corner today: I have eaten a weeks worth of food this morning.
Who am I kidding? I am never ready for these things.
I have reached over $1000 this year but I am feeling shamefaced because I enter BOTH races which means I should be raising $2000. Any takers on putting me over the top?
My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!
I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.
The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.
September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.
