Building on the success of True Patriot Love’s previous expeditions to the Himalayas (2012), the North Pole (2014) and Antarctica (2016), BEST OF CANADA aims to bring together a team of currently serving members or Veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces with business and community leaders to take on unique physical challenges together. Working as a team to complete a mission, participants will face physical, emotional, and mental roadblocks over a two-week period. By doing so, these individuals will get outside of their comfort zone and become a team. In addition to reaching their physical goal, the expedition team will collectively raise critical funds and awareness for the brave Veterans of our Canadian Armed Forces and their families. While fundraising is an important feature of the expedition series, the expeditions also provide an opportunity for participating soldier team members to face personal challenges on their journey of transition into civilian life. Many soldier team members are dealing with visible and invisible injuries as a result of their service, and this experience will provide them the opportunity to share their stories, bond with other participants, and transition into a fulfilling civilian role following service.
