The David Suzuki Foundation

We are proud to announce that we will be using our rowing project to raise funds for The David Suzuki Foundation!

David Suzuki Foundation

We are very excited to be working with the David Suzuki Foundation for this project.  We aim to increase awareness for our Oceans’ health while raising money for the Foundation in support of the great work they do to conserve our our environment while educating Canadians about our impact on the planet.

We know we’re doing something extraordinary by taking on this challenge of rowing across the Pacific, and we want to use our opportunity in the public eye to take note of the state of our oceans and show people where we rank on conservation as a community.

 

The David Suzuki Foundation’s mission is to protect the diversity of nature and our quality of life, now and for the future.
Our vision is that within a generation, Canadians act on the understanding that we are all interconnected and interdependent with nature.
