Create Your Own Fundraising Adventure
Calling all Alberta adventure lovers! We need YOU to make next year's Adventures for Wilderness a success. The possibilities are endless, and the dollars and awareness raised through our Adventures program are vital to the Alberta Wilderness Association's mission to defend Wild Alberta.
What makes an adventure? It can be almost anything! Adventures can be solo or with friends and can involve anything from meditation to mountain climbing. An adventure can take place in the park down the street from your house or the remote Alberta backcountry. This is your chance to deepen your connection to Alberta's wild places and help raise funds for the Alberta Wilderness Association.
Some examples of fundraising adventures people have dreamed up over the past three years include:
Jim and Bob's annual "Don't Let the Old Man In" Adventure.
- In 2020 they celebrated Bob's 65th birthday with 65 km of self propelled travel by canoe, bike and foot.
- In 2021 they mountain biked over 40 kilometres around Mt. Rundle
- In 2022 they celebrated Jim's 70th birthday with a three-day trip down the Oldman River
Ed Hergott led a fundraising adventure with the help of the "Mountain Maniacs" hiking group to get their legally blind friend Dave Wodelet to the summit of Junction Hill in Kananaskis.
