Like the other adventures of the Stinky Feet Project, the Fire Adventure's main objective is to raise funds for charity. This time, all funds raised will go to the Trans Canada Trail.

What is the trail and how does it affect me?

Great question! The Trans Canada Trail is the world's longest network of trails. When completed, the trail will stretch 22,000 km between the Pacific, Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, linking 1000 communities and all Canadians.

The trail is one of Canada's truly great endeavours. Experience Canada's legendary wilderness, explore provincial and territorial capitals, canoe the routes of early explorers, visit national and provincial parks, commute to and from work, cycle historic rail trails and picnic in urban parks.

Imagine it; just around the corner from where you live, there will be a trail that you could use every day. Use it to bike to work, or jog in the evenings. Walk downtown to your favourite restaurant in the summer, teach your kids to rollerblade, or strap on cross country skiis and enjoy the solitude of Canadian winters. In rural areas, you can horseback ride, snowmobile or canoe.

Go alone, take family, or meet new friends along the way. Go for an hour, a day, or even a week at a time; the possibilities are endless.

The Trans Canada Trail will quite likely become one of our great national symbols because it transcends our differences and binds us together, regardless of age, physical ability, race, religion or income. Could anything be more distinctly Canadian?

With over 16,500 km already in active use, the trail is nearing completion! The goal is to have the entire trail in operation in 2017 for Canada's 150th birthday!

I hope you're as excited about the trail as I am - and you can donate directly to the Trans Canada Trail directly from the Donate Now page!
